As an Agency, we are committed to improving the learning of every student in the state. We work to achieve that goal within federal policy and intensifying public focus on cost-effectiveness and accountability. We also work in a state with a demonstrated commitment to quality and equity in education and a legacy of public engagement. We can be proud of our innovations, from our portfolios to our personalized learning plans, from our farm to school initiatives to our college access opportunities. Vermont has often led the way.
