Integrated Educational Frameworks

Integrated educational frameworks strive to include all students, school personnel, families, and community in creating a positive culture and equity of access to learning within a school, school district, or supervisory union. A fully integrated educational framework brings together evidence-based practices fostering inclusive education. The Agency promotes the use of integrated educational frameworks as the basic structure on which to build multi-tiered supports for the learning and behavioral needs of all students in Vermont.
