MADISON (WKOW) -- Wisconsin Assembly Speaker Robin Vos has formed a new task force to address rural school issues.
Vos has named Representative Rob Swearingen, a Rhinelander Republican, to serve as the task force's chairman. The speaker has charged the task force to study a host of issues, including how rural schools can share innovations and efficiencies, transportation needs, strategies for long-term financial stability and how to handle declining enrollment.
The task force will produce a report on its findings and recommendations early next year.
Vos plans to announce the task force members next week. The group will hold its first meeting in Rhinelander and its second meeting in Merrill. Dates have yet to be determined.
