MONTPELIER, Vt. – The Vermont Agency of Education (AOE) announced an expanded agreement today with the Vermont Virtual Learning Cooperative (VTVLC) to provide Continuity of Learning resources to Vermont schools and students across the state. This partnership will provide a virtual learning management system to support school districts and supervisory unions, Career Technical (CTE) Centers and Adult Education centers. The system is targeted to serve students grades 6 – 12, and offers support to educators and schools as they serve students for the remainder of the school year and prepare to meet student needs in the coming year. This option will be provided at no cost to districts, schools or providers.
“Vermont Virtual Learning Cooperative has long been a great partner with schools and the Agency to provide online and blended learning opportunities,” said Secretary of Education Dan French. “They are stepping up to help Vermont students during this difficult time and their experience and expertise with online learning are greatly valued as we work to ensure Continuity of Learning for all Vermont schools.”
“For over eleven years we have worked collaboratively with Vermont schools and we’re proud to support Vermont teachers as they transition to remote teaching environment in this time of crisis,” said Jeff Renard, Director of VTVLC.
