The Act 46 Implementation Project is a collaboration of the Vermont School Boards Association, the Vermont Superintendents Association, and the Vermont School Boards Insurance Trust. Consistent with the VSBA’s historic role in supporting improved education governance, the Project offers consultant services to school boards that are working toward operating structures reflecting state priorities under Acts 46, 153, and 156.
