Miscellaneous Education Bill (Senate)

The Senate Education Committee began working on the annual miscellaneous education bill on Friday. There are several things this bill does, including:

  1. Create a State Board of Education staffing and compensation study.
  2. Order a study of course offerings in K-12 statewide looking for any disparities.
  3. Create a proficiency-based learning study committee.
  4. Investigate the possibility of a remote Teacher Grant Program.
  5. Appropriate funds for post-secondary school marketing (primarily for state colleges).
  6. A placeholder that would allow pre-k funds to be used across state lines for those in border towns.
  7. Create a working group on the status of libraries in Vermont.

There was some discussion around whether school safety measures should be included.
