Professional Standards

Each educator in the Vermont public schools must have a recommendation from the appropriate local or regional board to be relicensed. Within guidelines established by the Vermont Standards Board for Professional Educators (VSBPE), local boards set local standards for high-quality professional development and relicensure. Each educator is accountable to the local or regional board for the development of an acceptable individual professional development plan (IPDP), the corresponding professional development necessary for relicensure and a professional portfolio.

The professional standards team helps support the work of the state standards board (VSBPE) and local and regional standards boards (L/RSBs) and provides assistance to educators who are undergoing the process of relicensure.
