COVID-19 Resource Center

Throughout the pandemic, the Agency of Education (AOE) has provided guidance, information, and resources for Vermont school systems. This work has been conducted in coordination and partnership with the Vermont Department of Health and other State of Vermont agencies, and with our partners in the field. COVID-19 resources included on this page include educational resources, health and safety information, fiscal guidance and COVID-19 response programs like surveillance testing and vaccination. 

PLEASE NOTE: As of June 15, 2021, Vermont’s COVID-19 State of Emergency has ended. AOE guidance issued under the authority of the Governor’s Emergency Order has been rescinded as of that date. Much of this guidance has been preserved for reference purposes, but is no longer in effect. For current public health recommendations related to schools, please see Recommendations and Considerations for Vermont Schools.
