Act 46 school consolidation law brings new budget challenges

Posted on September 17, 2015 |
By John Flowers



MIDDLEBURY — Area school directors will face some additional challenges this fall as they try to craft fiscal year 2017 budgets that meet new per-pupil spending guidelines prescribed by Act 46, the state’s new education reform law.

Act 46, passed during the 2015 legislative session, offers financial incentives to supervisory unions that agree to establish a single, consolidated K-12 school district that would be governed by a single board. But the law also calls for per-pupil spending caps during a two-year transition toward full implementation of Act 46.

ADDISON COUNTY — The estimated 750 Addison County recipients of Women Infants and Children (WIC) benefits will see some major changes in the manner in which they access their benefits, as well as in the variety of foods at their disposal.

Here’s the biggest change: Beginning next spring, the state will end home delivery of WIC food packages and will instead issue an electronic benefits card to clients. Those clients will, as of May 1, 2016, be able to shop for their own WIC-eligible foods at local supermarkets, such as Shaw’s and Hannaford.

By John Flowers



HancockCountryStore2810.jpg

HANCOCK — In 2011 Tropical Storm Irene steamrolled through the town of Hancock, delivering a series of potent haymakers to many of its roads, culverts and, to a certain extent, community morale.

Four years later, the eastern Addison County town of 323 residents is on a firm road to recovery, a renaissance that has produced an improved and expanded town green, an imminent relocation of the municipal offices to a reclaimed former schoolhouse, and ongoing renovations to the historic Hancock General Store building near the intersection of Routes 125 and 100.
