School Quality Standards (SQS) Information & Resources


Vermont statutes (16 V.S.A. ยง165) require the State Board of Education to adopt School Quality Standards (SQS) as well as a process for monitoring their implementation in each public school in the state. The purpose "is to ensure that all students in Vermont public schools are afforded educational opportunities that are substantially equal" and that allows them to achieve or exceed the expectations of Vermont state standards. The SQS were most recently revised in 2006. Use the link above to view various SQS resources designed to implement the standards.
