Headmaster Tom Lovett's Op-Ed on December 6 Rulemaking Hearing

As many of you know, our independent schools face a grave threat from the rules being proposed by the State Board of Education. Many of you joined our legislators in writing letters to the Board and to the Inter-Agency Committee on Administrative Rules asking them to revise or withdraw the rules. Your voices were heard, and the Board was asked to take the rules back, do an economic impact study, and get stakeholder input. Now we are being given an opportunity to make our voices heard at a public stakeholder meeting on December 6 in Fuller Hall starting at 6:00 p.m., and I am asking all who support school choice and independent schools to turn out and let your voices be heard. Our students and their families are the primary stakeholders in this case, and I encourage as many as possible to show up next Tuesday night.

Nikole Burroughs to Speak at  Faculty Speaker Series

This week's Faculty Speaker Series will feature Senior Advisor to the Deputy Secretary of State Nikole Burroughs. The talk will take place on Monday, October 10th at 7:00 p.m. at the library in the Mayo Center. Nikole will speak about her unlikely path from Champlain Valley Union High School to working as a Senior Advisor to the Deputy Secretary of State. Nikole wrote, "When you look back it all makes sense and fits perfectly. But if you had told 16 year-old Nikki Burroughs of Williston, who had never left the country except for a Montreal Expos game, that at 26 I would have completed a Master's in Bruges on the EU and work for Senator Leahy, or that at 36 I would be a top advisor to the Deputy Secretary of State, sitting at the crux of national security and foreign policy decisions...well I would have laughed in your face and returned to my basketball practice."
