Allowable Tuition Rate Report

This report (previously known as "Net Cost Per Pupil) lists by school district and grade level the actual rate towns may charge for tuition. Allowable tuition is calculated by dividing actual allowable expenditures by the full-time equivalency of students. Vermont law requires publication of these data on or before November 1st each year.

Announced Tuition Report

Announced tuition rates for an upcoming school year are listed by town district, union district and private academy. Announced tuition is the maximum amount of tuition per student a receiving district can collect from sending districts. Vermont law requires that any increases over a previous year's announced tuition rate must be reported to sending districts and the Agency of Education by February 1st each year.

Assessment Data (State & National)

View links to various results from the Smarter Balanced for English Language Arts/Literacy and Mathematics assessment tests, NECAP Science assessment tests, National Assessment of Educational Progress ("Nations Report Card"), and several College Board results.

Average Daily Membership (ADM) Report

Average Daily Membership (ADM) is a count of resident and state-placed students who receive an elementary or secondary education at public expense; data are listed by town according to a student’s residence. Resident students are counted during the period from the 11th to the 30th day of the current school year, while state-placed students are counted for the school year prior to the current census period. Data are used in calculating equalized pupils which are used to determine the homestead tax rates.

Dropout & High School Completion Report (Graduation)

The agency presents event dropout and completion data in a single report along with an estimated cohort completion rate.

Enrollment Reports

Excess Spending Threshold

Under Act 68, a district with an education spending amount per equalized pupil (less approved construction costs and other specific exclusions) greater than the excess spending threshold incurs an additional tax for the amount over the threshold. The threshold amount is based on statewide data from the prior year.

Free or Reduced Lunch Percentages by School

High School Graduates - Post Secondary Enrollment

This report represents Vermont students who graduated with a regular high school diploma and enrolled in an institution of higher education within 16 months of their high school graduation date. This rate is not based on the 9th grade cohort. These percentages were derived using post-secondary data collected by the National Student Clearinghouse.

Per Pupil Spending (by District Type)

This report organizes town school districts into groups by the type of school system they operate. The data for each group include the number of equalized pupils, budgeted expenditures and local education spending per equalized pupil, and statewide rankings. Districts are ranked within the group, based on budgets per equalized pupils for the group alone. At the bottom of each grouping are comparative numbers showing what the data would be if the group was considered a single school district.

School Comparison Data for Cost-Effectiveness

Schools are required to report on student performance to community members at least annually. Part of the data to be included in those annual reports enable comparisons between schools for cost-effectiveness. The data in this report are from the secretary and have been provided to the supervisory unions for dissemination to the individual schools and school boards.

School Report

The school report contains information about public schools in Vermont. The report has enrollment information, student population breakouts, and education indicators about Vermont schools. These indicators include measures of school performance such as graduation rate, dropout rate, student / teacher ratio among others.

Small Schools Support Grants

This report lists small schools grant amounts. Small school districts operating at least one school are eligible for a small schools support grant if the two-year average enrollment is less than 100 or if the average grade size is 20 or fewer. Districts receiving a support grant are also eligible for a small schools financial stability grant if there is a 10% decrease in the two-year average enrollment in any one year.

Special Education Data

The agency collects and reports data annually on a number of indicators concerning special education as required under the Individuals with Disabilities Education Improvement Act of 2004 (IDEA). Current data available at both the statewide and supervisory union level in the Child Count, the State Performance Plan and the Annual Performance Report.

State Report Card

Under the NCLB Act, states and school districts (LEAs) are required, not later than the beginning of the 2002-2003 school year, to prepare and disseminate annual report cards. Requirements for the data elements to be reported are set forth under section 111(h) of the law. Although schools are not required to prepare and disseminate their own reports, information about whether a school has been identified for improvement and how a school’s students are achieving must be included in the state and school district reports.

Summary of the Annual Statistical Reports of Schools (SASRS)

This report, which provides an accounting of annual revenues and expenditures by school district, is provided in a form similar to data submitted to the National Center for Education Statistics by the Agency of Education. Data are organized according to federal definitions. Schools submit information to the agency in the Annual Statistical Report of Schools, due annually on August 15th.

Teacher & Principal Evaluation Surveys

In August 2013, principals and superintendents were surveyed regarding their districts’ teacher and principal evaluation practices. Some of the information gathered in these surveys was required as a condition of the state’s acceptance of federal Stimulus Funds under the American Recovery and Reinvestment Act (ARRA). View those results using the link above.

Teacher/Staff Full-time Equivalency (FTE) & Salary Report

This report presents data on student to teacher ratios, teacher
and staff full-time equivalencies (FTEs) and salaries in the
elementary and secondary school system. Collected annually each
fall, data are used to calculate average state class sizes and
salaries and are reported to the National Center for Education
Statistics and the Vermont School Boards Association.
