Public Information

"Public information" means pieces of information that are not considered confidential and generally pertain to the official business by the Agency of Education. "Public records" are defined by 1 V.S.A. § 317(b) as "any written or recorded information, regardless of physical form or characteristics, which is produced or acquired in the course of public agency business."

The agency's public information officer is the point of contact for reporters and journalists. The public information officer will share available information about education news and general agency business or coordinate with the appropriate subject matter, as needed.  Email press inquiries to Haley Jones or call (802) 479-1111.
