 readme-child reading book Barre Youth Mentoring Program-Since the 1999-2000 school year, the Barre Youth Mentor Program has provided mentoring to students in grades 6th-8th at Barre City Elementary and Middle School.

In an effort to fund recruitment efforts for all our mentoring programs, we are now participating in the Funding Factory Program (formerly the Green School Project).

 This project reduces waste and provides us with funds through the collection of empty printer, fax, and copier cartridges as well as cell phones, digital camera, MP3 players, GPS systems and laptop computers.

You can support our mentoring programs and our participating students by bringing in any of the above items and dropping them off in front of BCEMS library or in the front office.

If you have friends or family who would be willing to support this effort by requesting that their work sites participate in this recycling/fund raising project,

please contact Liz Bevins for additions information @  476-7889 This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it.

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!  Link to Barre Promise Community Questions: http://goo.gl/forms/bYDXEgizm9



School Board Governance Committee

On June 3, 2015 Governor Shumlin signed into law Act 46, intending to move the state towards more sustainable models of education governance.

On June 11, 2015 the Barre Supervisory Union Board approved the formation of a study committee to gather information and answer questions.

This committee will have 12 members. Each of the school boards for Barre Town Middle and Elementary School, Barre City Elementary and Middle School, and Spaulding High School/Barre Technical Center will have two representatives on the committee. Additionally, there are three community representatives that are non-board members on the committee from Barre Town and three from Barre City.

Our plan is for this committee to meet 3-6 times over the 2015-2016 school yearct 46 identifies the following goals as central to any decision aimed at consolidating existing school governance structures: To provide substantive equity in the quality and variety of educational opportunities statewide.

To lead students to achieve or exceed the State's Educational Quality Standards.To maximize operational efficiencies through increased flexibility to manage, share, and transfer resources, with the goal of increasing the district-level ratio of students to full-time equivalent staffTo promote transparency and accountability.

To achieve these goals at a cost that parents, voters, and taxpayers value. If you have questions about the work of this group or would like more detailed information please contact John Pandolfo, Superintendent of Schools, This email address is being protected from spambots.
