DATA COLLECTION & TRAINING MATERIALS
During each fiscal year, the department collects data from Vermont's supervisory unions and school districts. In addition, the department provides training to help school professionals provide this data. This area provides access to training materials, data collection instructions and forms for submitting data to the department.
Please contact the department's Helpdesk at (802) 828-3777 with questions regarding data collections.

School district budget data to determine education spending for determining homestead property tax rates
Preliminary budget data are used for: 1) creating the sheets for town meetings that estimate individual education property taxes paid after accounting for tax adjustments (income sensitivity); 2) as edit checks for the June 1st approved budget collection; and 3) to estimate the Education Fund reserve for future years.
Announced tuition is the maximum tuition a district can charge districts sending tuitioned students. Vermont law requires that any increases over a previous year’s announced tuition rate must be reported to sending districts and to the Agency of Education by January 15th each year.
The collection asks for the full-time equivalent count of all staff employed by each school and supervisory district/union and their corresponding salaries and/or cost of contracted services
