ACT 46


Act 46 Map

Act 46 of 2015 is a significant piece of legislation pertaining to school district governance reform. The goals of Act 46 are clearly stated in the law:

By enacting this legislation, the General Assembly intends to move the State toward sustainable models of education governance. The legislation is designed to encourage and support local decisions and actions that:

  1. provide substantial equity in the quality and variety of educational opportunities statewide;
  2. lead students to achieve or exceed the State’s Education Quality Standards, adopted as rules by the State Board of Education at the direction of the General Assembly;
  3. maximize operational efficiencies through increased flexibility to manage, share, and transfer resources, with a goal of increasing the district-level ratio of students to full-time equivalent staff;
  4. promote transparency and accountability; and
  5. are delivered at a cost that parents, voters, and taxpayers value
