Census-Based Funding Advisory Group

The Vermont General Assembly established the Census-Based Funding Advisory in Act 173 of 2018. The purpose of the act is to enhance the effectiveness, availability and equity of services to students who need additional support. The act changes the way special education funding is administered to a census-based funding model. The advisory group's role is to advise the State Board of Education on rulemaking related to the act. Additionally, the group will advise the Agency of Education and SU/SDs on the implementation of the act. Finally, the group may recommend any changes to law that may be needed to the General Assembly.

The Advisory Group will be active from 2018 through 2021.
