As part of the Vermont Agency of Education’s commitment to supporting schools in the delivery of effective K-12 mathematics instructional programs, this site provides teachers, administrators, expanded learning providers, higher education faculty, parents and community members with a broad range of resources. Mathematics education in Vermont is currently centered on the Common Core State Standards (CCSS). The CCSS for Mathematics contain both content and practice standards for students, which define what students should understand and be able to do. These Standards do not dictate curriculum or teaching methods, and are not intended to be new names for old ways of doing business.

Jump$tart Financial Literacy Standards
In January 2018, the State Board of Education adopted Jump$tart National Standards in K-12 Personal Finance Education to replace the Vital Results Career Choice and Personal Economics standards of Vermont’s Framework of Standards and Learning Opportunities. The Jumpstart standards supplement the current College, Career and Civic Life (C3) State Standards for Social Studies, Common Core State Standards in Mathematics (CCSSM), and Family and Consumer Sciences Education Grade Expectations. The State Board of Education recognized the multidisciplinary nature of financial literacy as these standards can be addressed within social studies, math, business and family and consumer science learning opportunities. Until a Financial Literacy page is created and curated by the Agency of Education (AOE), please note that links to the standards and pertinent financial literacy information will be maintained on both the AOE Global Citizenship and Mathematics sites.
Relevant resources can be accessed at NextGen Personal Finance. This site is aligned with Jump$tart Standards and includes individual lessons, semester-long courses, assessments, case studies and projects. All of the resources on this website are free.
