individual data reports for each school district and school.
This report (previously known as "Net Cost Per Pupil) lists by
school district and grade level the actual rate towns may charge
for tuition. Allowable tuition is calculated by dividing actual
allowable expenditures by the full-time equivalency of students.
Vermont law requires publication of these data on or before
November 1st each year.
Announced tuition rates for an upcoming school year are listed by
town district, union district and private academy. Announced
tuition is the maximum amount of tuition per student a receiving
district can collect from sending districts. Vermont law requires
that any increases over a previous year's announced tuition rate
must be reported to sending districts and the Agency of Education
by February 1st each year.

Average Daily Membership (ADM) is a count of resident and
state-placed students who receive an elementary or secondary
education at public expense; data are listed by town according to
a student’s residence. Resident students are counted during the
period from the 11th to the 30th day of the current school year,
while state-placed students are counted for the school year prior
to the current census period. Data are used in calculating
equalized pupils which are used to determine the homestead tax
The agency presents event dropout and completion data in a single
report along with an estimated cohort completion rate.
Under Act 68, a district with an education spending amount per
equalized pupil (less approved construction costs and other
specific exclusions) greater than the excess spending threshold
incurs an additional tax for the amount over the threshold. The
threshold amount is based on statewide data from the prior year.
This report represents Vermont students who graduated with a
regular high school diploma and enrolled in an institution of
higher education within 16 months of their high school graduation
date. This rate is not based on the 9th grade cohort. These
percentages were derived using post-secondary data collected by
the National Student Clearinghouse.
This report organizes town school districts into groups by the
type of school system they operate. The data for each group
include the number of equalized pupils, budgeted expenditures and
local education spending per equalized pupil, and statewide
rankings. Districts are ranked within the group, based on budgets
per equalized pupils for the group alone. At the bottom of each
grouping are comparative numbers showing what the data would be
if the group was considered a single school district.
Schools are required to report on student performance to
community members at least annually. Part of the data to be
included in those annual reports enable comparisons between
schools for cost-effectiveness. The data in this report are from
the secretary and have been provided to the supervisory unions
for dissemination to the individual schools and school boards.
The school report contains information about public schools in
Vermont. The report has enrollment information, student
population breakouts, and education indicators about Vermont
schools. These indicators include measures of school performance
such as graduation rate, dropout rate, student / teacher ratio
This report lists small schools grant amounts. Small school
districts operating at least one school are eligible for a small
schools support grant if the two-year average enrollment is less
than 100 or if the average grade size is 20 or fewer. Districts
receiving a support grant are also eligible for a small schools
financial stability grant if there is a 10% decrease in the
two-year average enrollment in any one year.
The agency collects and reports data annually on a number of
indicators concerning special education as required under the
Individuals with Disabilities Education Improvement Act of 2004
(IDEA). Current data available at both the statewide and
supervisory union level in the Child Count, the State Performance
Plan and the Annual Performance Report.
Under the NCLB Act, states and school districts (LEAs) are
required, not later than the beginning of the 2002-2003 school
year, to prepare and disseminate annual report cards.
Requirements for the data elements to be reported are set forth
under section 111(h) of the law. Although schools are not
required to prepare and disseminate their own reports,
information about whether a school has been identified for
improvement and how a school’s students are achieving must be
included in the state and school district reports.
This report, which provides an accounting of annual revenues and
expenditures by school district, is provided in a form similar to
data submitted to the National Center for Education Statistics by
the Agency of Education. Data are organized according to federal
definitions. Schools submit information to the agency in the
Annual Statistical Report of Schools, due annually on August
In August 2013, principals and superintendents were surveyed
regarding their districts’ teacher and principal evaluation
practices. Some of the information gathered in these surveys was
required as a condition of the state’s acceptance of federal
Stimulus Funds under the American Recovery and Reinvestment Act
(ARRA). View those results using the link above.
This report presents data on student to teacher ratios, teacher
and staff full-time equivalencies (FTEs) and salaries in the
elementary and secondary school system. Collected annually each
fall, data are used to calculate average state class sizes and
salaries and are reported to the National Center for Education
Statistics and the Vermont School Boards Association.
