The Boone County Learning Network has dissolved after nearly six years of serving educational needs of the county.
The network’s board voted last spring to dissolve due to the pressures of reduced funding, said former board president Dax Norton, also of the Boone County Economic Development Corp.
“Essentially, it just ceased to exist,” Norton said. “It was really a matter of funding, nothing to do with its performance.”
The learning network had been running on a budget of around $100,000 a year for the last couple of years, Norton said. A majority of the funding came from the Community Foundation of Boone County, which decided to go in a different direction this year.
