Signed into law during the 2015 legislative session, Act 46 seeks to move the State toward more sustainable models of education governance. It is designed to encourage and support local decisions and actions that:
Provide substantial equity in the quality and variety of educational opportunities
Lead students to meet or exceed the State’s Education Quality Standards
Maximize operational efficiencies through greater flexibility to manage, share, and transfer resources, with a goal of increasing district-level student-to-staff ratios
Promote transparency and accountability
Are delivered at a cost that parents, voters, and taxpayers value
Implementation must be voted on by the town of Wolcott and completed by July 1, 2019.
