BARRE, Vt. – The Vermont Agency of Education has released Vermont’s first Annual Snapshot, an online tool that shows quantitative data for several metrics of school performance. The Snapshot contains information about each public school in every Supervisory District and Supervisory Union (SD/SU) in the state.
“This is a Vermont-centered approach to assessing school performance, using measures chosen by Vermonters,” said Secretary of Education Daniel M. French, Ed.D. “The snapshot will help communities understand how their schools are supporting achievement for all of their students. The goal is to provide a new level of data to help schools improve and grow.”
The Annual Snapshot is a way for Vermonters to better understand how their schools are performing and find opportunities for growth and improvement. The Annual Snapshot reports a school’s current performance, improvement over the past year and success in achieving an equitable education for all students. It was developed in concert with educators to reflect Vermont’s philosophy of continuous improvement.
