In the Spring of 2013, Chittenden East Supervisory Union’s member school boards voted to move forward with the statutory steps required to establish a Voluntary Merger Planning Committee (VMPC) and to begin studying the viability of one unified Prek-12 school district. The merger option the VMPC will be focusing on is a Modified Unified Union School District (MUUSD). MUUSD’s are a school district merger option in Act 156.
Currently, town school boards (i.e. Bolton, Richmond, Huntington, Jericho, Underhill Town and Underhill I.D.) are determining a budget for the VMPC, appointing committee members and establishing the representation of the VMPC.
The following links provide an overview of the voluntary school district merger process, the CESU Phase I Governance Study completed in 2010 and a description of Modified Unified Union School Districts:
