Black River Independent School Committee to host a question and answer meeting

LUDLOW, Vt. – BRISC will host an informational event Monday, Aug. 20 at the Fletcher Memorial Library at 5:30 p.m. Students, parents, and community members are encouraged to stop by with their questions and input for the committee.

The Ludlow-based Black River Independent School Committee, an official tax-exempt organization, is pursuing their mission to open a local independent school. BRISC has been actively working on approval from the Vermont Board of Education to establish Black River Academy, an independent school serving grades seven through 12 in Ludlow and Mount Holly and beyond. The school would be free of charge to students living in Ludlow or Mount Holly.

If you would like more information or would like to get involved with BRISC, please contact Uli Donohue, chair, or John Bannon, co-chair, at blackriveracademy@gmail.com. The committee also has a Facebook page @blackriveracademy.
