Vermont has adopted standards to provide a consistent set of learning goals for all students in all schools. These standards are our operational description of what we want our students to know and be able to do, and what level of proficiency we think they need to have to thrive in civic and economic life. Statewide assessments provide information on students’ mastery of state standards and allows educators to plan improvements to their teaching through a better understanding of a student’s progress.
On March 21, 2020, The Agency of Education has requested a waiver, pursuant to section 8401(b) of the Elementary and Secondary Education Act of 1965 (ESEA), as amended of the assessments, accountability and school identification, and reporting requirements due to COVID-19.
If you have comments about this waiver, please email firstname.lastname@example.org and include "ESEA WAIVER" in the subject line.
