The Vermont Agency of Education has developed a survey to collect data from health and physical educators considering Vermont’s Education Quality Standards, proficiency-based learning, and the development of Supervisory Union/School District K-12 health and physical education curricula anchored to national standards. If you are a K-12 Health and/or Physical Education teacher, please take the time to complete the Health and Physical Education survey. The survey will close on August 4, 2017. The feedback will be used to develop an understanding of the status of K-12 health and/or physical education programs in Vermont schools to inform the Agency’s work considering supporting the field.

Classroom Assessment Scoring System (CLASS) is an assessment tool and professional development system that measures the interactions in classrooms and helps teachers improve those interactions. It is recommended by the Vermont Agency of Education and is used as part of the Vermont Step Ahead Recognition System (STARS). The free one-day workshop will give you an overview of what CLASS measures and how it helps to improve interactions in ten different dimensions, including Behavior Management, Concept Development, and Language Modeling. There will be six sessions offered on Saturdays in July and August throughout the state. Register for the CLASS PreK Introductory Training.
