May 12, 2018; Ludlow, VT – Recently, the Ludlow-based Black River Independent School Committee was granted the right to operate as a tax-exempt 501(c)(3) organization. The group is currently in the process of completing the application to submit to the Vermont Board of Education to establish Black River Academy, an independent school serving grades 7-12 in Ludlow, Mount Holly and beyond.
The group has been hard at work developing a mission and vision for the school as well as a business plan and preliminary budget. BRISC will apply for a grant in May through the Vermont Community Foundation. The grant is for “nonprofit capacity building” and would be used to fund the strategic planning needed to get the school off the ground.
