Learn. Act. Vote.

Our students deserve our support. The best way to do right by Vermont’s kids is to invest in strong public schools that provide opportunities for ALL students. We know that schools with high quality teachers and support professionals; art, music, sports, and other offerings; strong academic programs; and extra support for students who need it are what we all want for our students and our communities. This spring, you have a chance to show your support for Vermont’s local public schools. And while we know that all the talk this year is about exploding tax rates, we know we can’t afford NOT to do right by Vermont’s students – our state’s future. So this spring, we invite you to learn, act, and vote.


The more you know about your community’s school budget proposal, the more informed you’ll be about the investments your local school board is making in your community’s children. Head to your local school board’s website, where warned budgets and supporting documents are posted. If you have questions, ask them. If you see something you are particularly excited about – say, new offerings, more high-quality teachers, or a plan to repair school buildings – share that news with your neighbors.


Get involved. Show up to school board meetings. Talk to your community’s children and their parents to learn their priorities. Know where your polling place is. And most importantly, become a public education champion. Vermont’s students depend on you – and all of us.


This spring, budgets are on the ballot. We encourage you to keep the interests of your community’s public school students in mind when you cast your vote. Right now, make sure that you know where your polling place is. Most importantly, make sure you’re registered to vote. It’s fast and easy to do; just head over to the elections resources page on the Secretary of State’s website.
