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.
