Committee Picks 3 Finalists For Vt. Education Secretary

11/07/12 5:04PM

A committee of the Vermont State Board of Education has picked three finalists to become the secretary of education in Vermont.

They are: Daniel French, superintendent of the Bennington-Rutland Supervisory Union in Manchester; Brent Kay, superintendent of the Orange Southwest Supervisory Union in Randolph; and current Education Commissioner Armando Vilaseca of Westford.

A new state law calls for the creation of a Vermont Agency of Education and authorizes the governor to appoint a secretary from three candidates proposed by the education board.

The secretary will be a member of the governor's cabinet.

The search committee announced its recommendations on Wednesday. The three candidates will be proposed to the full state Board of Education on Nov. 13.
