BARRE, Vt. – The Vermont Agency of Education has awarded seven Equity Literacy grants to thirteen Vermont school districts and supervisory unions across the state. The grants, totaling nearly $200,000, will support individual and collaborative projects in addressing equity gaps in their school communities. A total of eleven applications were submitted, involving numerous partnerships and collaborative work. Grantee awards will range in funding from approximately $4,000 to $44,000. Summaries of the grant proposals can be found on the agency’s website.

“We’re really pleased with the level of interest in this grant opportunity,” said Secretary of Education Dan French. “We received applications requesting approximately $487,000.

This grant is just one component of a multi-faceted effort by the AOE to support school districts addressing equity gaps in their school communities.
