School Choice Timeline in Croydon

Received this from the SAU to post with agenda for meeting on October 14th, 2015. 
1. Movement to withdraw from the AREA agreement began in 2006.
2. As part of that process a plan was created and submitted to the state Board of Education.
3. All schools Croydon parents requested were included in that plan, which included Mt Royal and Newport Montessori.
4. The BOE reviewed the withdrawal plan twice prior to the town 2012 vote, once in 2010 and once in 2011.
5. The only school the state BOE had an issue with was Mt. Royal, which was promptly removed.
6. The state BOE said that private schools need to be state-approved.
7. The town was operating on the state BOE’s statement that private schools need to be state approved. In addition, the following RSAs support this practice: 194:22, 193:3.
The Croydon School Board’s goal:
To provide adequate school options for all students.
