Since 1993 Vermont schools have been participating in the Vermont Youth Risk Behavior Survey (YRBS). This Survey is administered every 2 years and gives the community data on risky behaviors youth are engaged in as well as protective factors in our community. In 2011 the survey changed from one survey for 8th-12th grade, into 2 separate surveys, one for high school students and one survey for students in grades 6-8. The data that follows is specific to our community and also how we compare to the state average. If you would like more information, or would like to see a copy of the survey, please visit website:

Dear Barre City Families, The Barre City School District is preparing for implementation of Act 166: Universal Prekindergarten as of July 1, 2016. This law will entitle publicly-funded prekindergarten to all 3, 4 and 5-year-old children who are not entering kindergarten for 10 hours per week for 35 weeks per academic year. The Agency of Education has developed a database of pre-qualified prekindergarten providers for families.
For more information, go to: http://education.vermont.gov/act-166
The Barre Supervisory Union will be holding community forums about Act 166 in the 2015-2016 school year. The First Family Forum will be held on Friday, November 20th 7:30-9:00am at the Aldrich Public Library.
If you are interested in having your child attend the Barre City Prekindergarten Program, you may call to have your child's name placed on the waitlist now. Please know that we cannot guarantee enrollment, as spaces are limited. BCEMS will provide screening for children who have developmental concerns at any time. If you would like to have your child's name placed on the wai list or if you would like to request developmental screening, please call the School Registrar, Linda Rodriguez for information.
