With the overall goal of supporting healthy environments for our youth, the VT Youth Project officially kicked off last week with its first community meeting.  All 5 towns in our district will benefit from the work of this Project that utilizes real-time data to amplify and enhance great programs and efforts already happening in our communities and to identify new opportunities to provide healthy environments for youth.  Learn more about this exciting new project by watching this video of the meeting. 

 

On December 5, 2019, K-8 schools in our District will host a team of educators from neighboring school systems, along with staff from the Vermont Agency of Education, as part of our triennial Integrated Field Review (IFR).  The IFR is a review of documents, interviews with students, parents, and staff, and observations of schools designed to reveal common practices in a supervisory union or school district. This is a collaborative and reciprocal process.  Staff members from our district will visit and review neighboring school systems in the weeks that follow. 

This Integrated Field Review process results in a written report, featuring school system-level commendations and recommendations in the areas of Academic Proficiency, Personalization, Safe Healthy Schools, High-Quality Staffing and Investment Priorities.  These are the five domains of Vermont’s Education Quality Standards. The IFR process is flexible and is not evaluative; the results of a school system’s IFR can be used at their discretion. This may include continuous improvement planning, creating networking opportunities with neighboring districts, guiding future professional development and/or other activities.

You or your student may be asked to participate in this process as an interviewee.  Please know that this is entirely voluntary.  Contact Ben White, Director of Curriculum, Communication and Innovation at the district central office if you have any questions or concerns about this process.
