Task force will look at viability of rural school districts

UNDATED (WSAU-Wheeler News)  A new task force will come up with ideas to help Wisconsin's rural schools improve and stay viable. State Assembly Speaker Robin Vos formed the new group. He has named Rhinelander Republican Rob Swearingen as its chairman. Vos wants the task force to look for ideas to help rural schools be more innovative and efficient. He also wants them to study ways to remain financially stable while handling declining enrollments, and dealing with transportation needs.

The rest of the task force members will be named next week.

The group will hold its first two meetings in Rhinelander and Merrill. Those dates have not been set.

Vos wants the group to report on its recommendations by early next year.
