Resources to support multi-tiered system of supports: 

BEST Grant Application

We have designated implementation of evidence-based practices, positive school climate, student proficiency, and personalization within a tiered system of academic and behavioral supports to assist all students in working toward attainment of the standards as the priority area for use of  Act 230 grant funds. BEST funds are intended for training and professional learning to support students with emotional and behavioral needs. 

Each Vermont supervisory union/district may apply for BEST Act 230 funds; up to $7,000.00 for the designated purposes plus an additional amount of up to $5,000.00 for the purpose of PBIS Implementation Coaching. This application must be completed on or before October 1, 2017.

Each Vermont supervisory union/district may also apply for a BEST Act 230 Innovation Grant of up to $20,000. This application must be completed on or before October 15, 2017. The Innovation Grant request will be reviewed by AOE staff and may be approved in full, in part, or not approved.
