Pursuant to the recently passed S.130/Act 77, the charge of this group is contained in statute and is quoted here:

"On or before July 15, 2013, the Secretary of Education shall convene a working group to consist of teachers and principals of elementary and secondary schools, superintendents, and other interested parties to support implementation of the personalized learning plan process, particularly in those schools that do not already have a process in place. The working group shall consider ways in which effective personalized learning plan processes enhance development of the evolving academic, career, social, transitional, and family engagement elements of a student's plan and shall identify best practices that can be replicated in other schools. The working group also shall consider ways in which the personalized learning that should occur in kindergarten through grade six can be used to reinforce and enhance the personalized learning plan process in grade seven through grade 12."

By January 20, 2014, the working group shall develop and the Secretary shall publish on the Agency website guiding principles and practical tools for the personalized learning plan process and for developing personalized learning plans. The Secretary shall provide clarity regarding the differences in form, purpose, and function of personalized learning plans, educational support teams, plans created pursuant to section 504 of the federal Rehabilitation Act of 1973, and individualized education programs (IEPs). The Agency shall provide further guidance and support to schools as requested.


The Vermont Agency of Education is pleased to announce grant awards for Work-Based Learning and Personalized Learning Plans. These grants will support the development of models of innovative practice aligned with the goals of Act 77.
