Barre school board to study career center move

BARRE, Vt. (AP) A Vermont school board is going to study relocating the Central Vermont Career Center as part of a broader effort to determine the best way to deliver career technical education.

The Times Argus reports the Barre Unified School Board has agreed to spend $25,000 in surplus funds on the study.

Career Center Director Penny Chamberlin said decoupling from Barre's Spaulding High School and building a new center at a different location remains an option, but so does operating out of the current facility and changing the method of delivering technical education to area students.

Chamberlin says there has never been a study of what students, parents and the community want from the center.

Chamberlin says the study would be conducted by a yet-to-be-chosen consultant working with members of a committee.
