By Gaen Murphree



Act 46 requires that communities form unified pre-K–12 school districts that serve at least 900 students by July 1, 2019. The law is designed to address rising costs in education — the number of Vermont schools has remained steady but the number of students served in those schools has dropped over the past several decades — and to provide greater equity in educational opportunities. Before the law went into effect, Vermont’s 303 public schools were governed independently in close to 280 school districts.
