VT Agency of Education Announces Formation of a Family Engagement Council

The Vermont Agency of Education recently announced the formation of a Family Engagement Council to advise the secretary on education policy and topics of interest to parents in Vermont.

The council will have 10-15 members who are parents, guardians, or family members who are primary caregivers of a student or students enrolled in a Vermont school or Home Study program. To the extent possible, the membership of the council will represent the state’s geographic, gender, socio-economic, racial and ethnic diversity. Parents of younger children, parents in non-traditional families, and grandparents or other relatives acting as primary caregivers are especially encouraged to apply.

Interested parents, guardians and caregivers can fill out the Application for Appointment, which is designed to take ten minutes to complete. Applications are due by Dec. 18, 2022.
