Ten Supervisory Unions, Districts Selected for Special Education Review
BARRE, Vt. – Ten supervisory unions and supervisory districts throughout Vermont were selected for a Special Education Services Review, the Vermont Agency of Education announced today. The project will review current practices for the delivery of special education services against research-based best practices under a contract with the District Management Council (DMC).
This project is authorized in Sec. 4 of Act 148 (2016). The law requires the Agency select at least three supervisory unions or supervisory districts with an average daily membership (ADM) of 1,500 students or more, and at least three unified union school districts formed pursuant to Act 46 of 2015.
“The purpose of this project is to build local capacity to better manage systems and deliver services,” said Rebecca Holcombe, Secretary of Education. “All our systems strive to get the best value for students out of every dollar. DMC’s mission is to help systems figure out how to provide high-quality care for students in the most cost-effective way possible. What we learn from these systems, we hope to share with others that were not able to participate.”
