Vermont Agency of Education Seeks Public Comments on Proposed Revisions to its Perkins V State Plan

March 1, 2024

The Vermont Agency of Education is required to revise its Perkins V State Plan to update Vermont’s State Determined Performance Levels (SDPLs), using the two most recent years of data to set a baseline. The Agency of Education also proposes to revise some specific provisions in the State Perkins Plan. This document provides the full text for all proposed changes to Vermont’s Perkins V State Plan.

The period of public comment is from Friday, March 1, 2024, through Monday, April 1, 2024. Comments must be submitted in writing on this Public Comment Form.

Proposed changes to Vermont’s Perkins Plan fall into three categories. First, Vermont will make select changes to our Accountability Measurements. Vermont seeks to delete some state performance measures from the State Plan. These state measures are not required by federal law, and while Vermont will still collect and analyze this data, Vermont will no longer detail that in the State Plan.  Also in this category, Vermont has worked with Community College of Vermont to revise the numerator and denominator definitions for two required post-secondary performance indicators, with the goal of improving the timeliness and accuracy of the data collected and reported.

Next, Vermont is required to set new State Determined Performance Levels and to demonstrate that our process aligns with requirements set forth in law. These revisions will replace in full one section of the State Plan.

Finally, Vermont has identified other revisions that are technical corrections, clarifications, or reflect anticipated changes in practice beginning in the 2024 – 2025 school year. Those are set forth in a chart that indicates what is currently in place and then the planned revision.
