Local & Regional Standards Boards (LRSBs)

INTRODUCTION
   
  The Vermont Standards Board for Professional Educators (VSBPE) has established 68 local standards boards (LSBs) and six regional standards boards (RSBs) throughout the state. Within guidelines established by the VSBPE, the LSBs are responsible for assisting teachers through the process of renewing their licenses and the RSBs are responsible for assisting administrators. LSBs and RSBs recommend educators to the Licensing Office for license renewal once the educator has successfully completed all requirements.

A Vision for Teaching, Leading, and Learning: Core Teaching and Leadership Standards for Vermont Educators
Includes both the Core Teaching and Leadership Standards for Vermont Educators. Together these standards form a blueprint for the performances and essential knowledge that every educator should strive towards to ensure that all preK-12 students are college and career ready. The Vermont Standards Board for Professional Educators (VSBPE) has chosen to also include the Learning Forward standards for professional learning in this book because of the increasing importance of professional growth and reflection in schools. Finally, this document includes the Code of Professional Ethics and Rules of Professional Conduct.

The Re-Licensing Process for Vermont Educators
This handbook assists educators and Local and Regional Standards Boards with the current relicensure process which was adopted by the Vermont Standards Board for Professional Educators (VSBPE) on February 20, 2013. The process aligns with the A Vision for Teaching, Leading, and Learning: Core Teaching and Leadership Standards for Vermont Educators and the Rules Governing the Licensing of Educators and the Preparation of Educational Professionals (effective August 2, 2013).
