Vermont Northern Lights
Career Development Center
Vermont Northern Lights is a statewide career development center
for early childhood and afterschool professionals in Vermont. It
partners with educators and providers working in schools, child
care programs, home visiting programs and other community
settings to guide and enhance staff professional development
opportunities. Its purpose is to support and enhance a
comprehensive, accessible and integrated system of quality
professional development in the state.
The Individuals with Disabilities Education Act (IDEA) 2004
requires states to demonstrate that a comprehensive statewide
child find system exists for children with disabilities from
birth through age 21. Vermont's comprehensive child find system
includes policies and procedures which ensure that all infants
and toddlers who may be eligible for services under Part C of
IDEA are identified and evaluated. As co-lead agencies for Part
C, the attached interagency memo was approved and signed by
William Talbott, Acting DOE Commissioner, and Cynthia D. LaWare,
Secretary of the Agency of Human Services, on September 11th,
2008. The memo clarifies school district Part C child find
requirements; the tasks necessary to undertake activities to
locate, identify and evaluate children birth to age 3 who may
require early intervention services; and the allowable use of
funds that school districts may use to fulfill Part C child find
activities. Technical and on-going assistance will be available
to school district and regional FITP host agencies by DOE and AHS
staff to assist local efforts in the formulation and
implementation of their Part C regional agreements.
This agreement among the Agency of Education, Agency of Human
Services, Head Start and others identifies roles and
responsibilities for coordination and collaboration to ensure
high-quality learning development and learning options for young
children with disabilities.
