MONTPELIER, Vt. (AP) - Vermont Gov. Phil Scott is looking to appoint two members to the State Board of Education.

Scott said Wednesday that he is seeking applications for appointments to a six-year term starting in March.

“I’m seeking to appoint individuals who are committed to enhancing the quality of education for our kids and ensuring students in all corners of Vermont have an equal opportunity to succeed,” the Republican governor said in a written statement.

The board is responsible for the establishment, advancement, and evaluation of public education policy and its duties include making regulations governing student attendance, standards for student performance, disbursement of funds, and equal access for all Vermont students to a quality education, the governor’s office said.

Applications can be filled out online on the home page of the governor’s office on the state of Vermont website under board’s and commissions.
