Local school boards received a show of support from legislators in Concord on Thursday when the state Senate voted to pass an amended version of SB 140 (the Learn Everywhere bill) by adding a key sentence: “Each local school board shall determine whether to grant academic credit for alternative, extended learning and work-based programs.”

Conway School Board member Mark Hounsell, who watched the live-stream of the Senate on Thursday morning, was thrilled by the amendment. Within minutes of the unanimous vote (24-0), Hounsell sent the following to each senator: “Thank you for your support of SB 140 as amended. I join with many in recognizing the actions by the Senate today was a strong vote of support of local school boards.”
