Vermont Promise Community

Barre City and Barre Town have been selected as a Vermont Promise Community. The Promise Communities project focuses on helping our youngest children have the best possible start in life. Right now, a group of people from Barre including parents, community members, and school staff, and people from child care, mental health, churches, libraries, non-profits and the state are working together to help draft a plan based on what Barre families want to see in our community to help our children succeed. Once our plan is complete, we will be eligible to receive $200,000 to implement our plan. We need your help as we work together to craft this plan to help support our children. Please join us!

2015-2016 Barre City at Sugarbush


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. Please know that we cannot guarantee enrollment, as spaces are limited. BCEMS will provide screening for children who have developmental concerns at any time. If you would like to have your child's name placed on the wai list or if you would like to request developmental screening, please call the School Registrar, Linda Rodriguez for information.
