Act 46 of 2015
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:
The voters of Hardwick are the ones to decide what course of action the school district will take. Implementation must be completed by July 1, 2019.
OSSU Act 46 Exploratory Committee
Each school board within Orleans Southwest Supervisory Union voted to join an exploratory committee to help each member town understand Act 46 and options for our students, families, and community since each town must ultimately decide how it wishes to meet Act 46’s requirements. The committee was dissolved by the OSSU Executive Committee in February 2017. Current efforts include developing the required report to continue within an "alternative structure" model.
