The VPA is committed to supporting principals in their mission as educational leaders providing high quality education to all Vermont children. Therefore, the VPA believes it is essential that school principals' needs and viewpoints are represented at the state level in both the Vermont General Assembly and state agencies. The VPA strives to act as the effective liaison between school building leaders and state-level decision makers. If you have an issue or a concern regarding existing or potential state laws, regulations, or policies, please share your perspective with our staff. Call the office at (802) 229-0547 or e-mail VPA Executive Director Ken Page.
