Vermont’s new accountability and continuous improvement systems were designed to help schools identify and reduce performance gaps between student groups.  As a part of implementing these systems, we need to apply an additional level of scrutiny and intentionality to our work supporting students who are often underserved by our education systems:  English learners, students with disabilities, students living in poverty, and racial minorities.  

As a part of supporting this effort, the AOE will be partnering with Vermont teachers to identify how better practices and systems serving historically marginalized students can be supported:  at the state level, and within schools and SUs/SDs.  We’re seeking to begin this conversation through two work sessions, tentatively scheduled for February and April, 2018 (specific dates TBA).  The goal of the sessions will be to identify high-priority local-level needs related to supporting equity and diversity, with project content and outcomes being shaped by participating teachers. 

Please provide the information requested below to register for this project.  Space is limited; all interested parties are encouraged to register, with educators identifying with historically marginalized populations being prioritized for participation.
