With the passage of Act 98 of 2012, the Vermont Department of Education became the Agency of Education and the Commissioner of Education became the Secretary. In light of that, the State Board of Education interprets the terms "commissioner" and "department" in the State Board of Education Manual of Rules and Practices to mean "secretary" and "agency" until such time as the language in the Rules is updated through a formal rulemaking process.
