Spring Census and SECT

The Spring Census is an updated list of Vermont public school students with attendance and absence information. The Agency of Education is also required to collect data regarding student courses in such a way to allow the linkage of students with teachers and to provide the state with student transcript information. The Student Educator Course Transcript (SECT) is the mechanism for collecting such data, including courses taken, credits earned and so on.​

Spring Census – Due date July 14, 2017

SECT – Due date August 15, 2017

Please contact the agency's Helpdesk at (802) 479-1044 with questions regarding data collections.

Digital Learning Plan, Draft for Public Comment

The Agency of Education is seeking public comment on the draft Vermont's statewide 2018 - 2021 Digital Learning Plan. As required, the Agency of Education will be accepting public comments for the 90 days from June 30, 2017 to September 29, 2017.

Comments and questions can be sent to Peter Drescher, Education Technology Coordinator, by email or US mail to Vermont Agency of Education, 219 North Main Street, Suite 402, Barre, Vermont 05641.

Thank you for taking the time to contribute to this process.  If you have any questions about the public comment process, please email Peter Drescher or call (802) 479-1169.

Locals are still required to submit their own Digital Learning Plans to the Agency of Education, which are due on June 30, 2018. This released draft of the state Digital Learning Plan contains a suggested template section.

This requirement is an amendment to the Technology Plan requirement in the past. The Agency of Education still sees tremendous value in having Supervisory Unions, Unified Districts and Supervisory Districts create and turn in a three-year plan for how technology will support learning. The new plan, now known as the Vermont Digital Learning Plan, will be on a three-year cycle and will be required to be turned in at the start of each 3 year period.  While some plans in the past were on a different cycle, all will be on the same cycle, meaning there should be a submission from each SU or SD in this next iteration. Some have already passed in plans from the earlier request. To reiterate, plans will be due June 30, 2018. Webinars and other training materials will commence in Fall 2017 to further support this work. The final Digital Learning Plan will be posted around the beginning of October 2017.  We will also be seeking a peer review committee to evaluate submitted plans.
