Strategic Vision


The Agency of Education, with assistance from AdvanceCTE, is leading the process of developing a strategic vision for career technical education (CTE) in Vermont. This process will take place in two phases over six months.

Phase one involves collecting information from a variety of sources from across the state. We will be conducting telephone interviews with a select group of individuals, including CTE students and parents. A fifty question survey was open from March 26 to April 9, 2018. The intent of the survey is to understand how people perceive CTE. The survey will be open and available to any interested party. The Agency will use this information to develop a strategic vision statement with at least three action plan goals that will be proposed in phase two.

Phase two will take the form of a state-wide working meeting. In this meeting, attendees will review and suggest modifications to the proposed vision and goals. Once the strategic vision and goals are adopted, the Agency of Education will conduct a review of policies and practices and make recommendations to the State Board of Education, and possibly the General Assembly, so that the vision can be achieved.

Our goal is to create a unifying vision that clearly states the role of CTE in the education and workforce development systems in Vermont. We believe a clearly articulated vision and goals will help school officials and policy makers make decisions about the opportunities that are available to students.
