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.
The State Board of Education and Agency of Education provide leadership, support, and oversight to ensure that the Vermont public education system enables all students to be successful.
Every learner completes his or her public education with the knowledge and skills necessary for success in college, continuing education, careers, and citizenship. The public education system provides flexible learning environments rich with 21st-century tools that promote self-development, academic achievement, and active engagement in learning. It operates within a framework of high expectations for every learner with support from educators, families and the community.
