The Vermont Agency of Education (AOE) believes strong school district systems will be essential for districts to navigate the change to special education block grant funding required by Act 173. This document provides an overview of future AOE technical assistance for developing strong school district systems to support student success. The summary outlines areas where the AOE will be providing technical assistance in the coming months and identifies existing resources relevant to this work. It also outlines major areas of responsibility for supervisory districts (SD) and supervisory unions (SU).
This document is intended to be used by school district leaders, school board members, administrative staff and teachers. This document is designed to support SU/SDs in the important work of implementing district-wide student support systems and providing the professional development educators will need to expand and improve their delivery of services to students who require additional supports.
