Vermont Licensed Teacher End-of-Year Assessments

Given the passage of Act 107 of 2006 which decreases the need for
an up-front minimum course of study, the goal of agency home
study staff is to increase consistency in end-of-year
assessments. A letter may be prepared by a licensed Vermont
teacher in a form provided by the Agency of Education or a
teacher may write a letter which contains the same information as
requested on the form. The instructions for preparing the Vermont
licensed teacher letter assessment, the Vermont licensed teacher
letter expectations, and the Vermont licensed teacher letter
assessment form, will help to ensure that the same information is
conveyed in the same manner for all students who choose to use a
teacher report as their method of year-end assessment. Download
