Mission T o provide quality educational services responsive to academic, vocational and social needs of Vermont Residents without a basic education to improve their knowledge, skills and abilities to function as meaningful participants in the Community. B eing a meaningful participant means having attained the "Vital Results" in the Vermont Framework of Standards and Learning Opportunities. The Vital Results focus on the areas of: Communication, Reasoning and Problem-Solving, Personal Development and Civic and Social Responsibility. Weather O UR P HILOSOPHY A ll Vermonters should have access to a quality basic education that has equivalent educational expectations for all students. "Vermont's Framework of Standards and Learning Opportunities," including the "School Quality Standards" and the school reform processes, built on those "Standards," is the basis for assisting all students to acquire high academic and workplace skills. B ecause these students are presently under the custody of the Vermont Department of Corrections (DOC); the design, operation and continuous improvement of this School provides a strong emphasis on protecting the public, staff and students with programs, balanced with appropriate security. This Educational Mission is best served when the educational programs for students is established, as separate and distinct educational entity, within the operational functions of the Department of Corrections (DOC) and regulatory responsibility of the Vermont Department of Education.

What is Vermont FEED?
Vermont FEED is a collaborative project of the Northeast Organic Farming Association of Vermont, Food Works ( ) and Shelburne Farms ( Since 2000, the FEED partners have been connecting five components: classroom, community, farms, school gardens, and the cafeteria. We find that we can be the catalyst or spark in each of the schools we work in to improve children's connection to their health, the food they eat, and their communities. The goals of VT FEED are to:
  • Improve direct marketing opportunities for locally produced foods and improve the diets and eating patterns of school aged children through the development of local purchasing contracts; and Increase students' knowledge of sustainable farming systems through development and testing of a replicable farm and food curriculum that meets the Vermont Framework for Standards and Learning.

Mission Programs News Board/Staff ... Contact Us Funded by the A.D. Henderson Foundation and the Vermont Education Initiative, VSA Arts of VT's Early Childhood Development Program brings enhanced arts-based services to over 100 children in Burlington and Winooski whose families are homeless, at-risk of becoming homeless, or residents of Winooski and the Old North End in Burlington. Programming takes place at the Riverside Public Housing Project, the Committee on Temporary Shelter's Family Shelter, the Champlain Multi-Generational Center, the Sara Holbrook Center, and within the public school system of Winooski. These programs run year-round. VSA Arts of Vermont has conducted three separate year-round arts programs for pre-schoolers and elementary school aged children, along with program coordination and art supplies. These programs - New Visions Dance Project, Start With The Arts and Home in the Arts - have been enormous successes. The intent of the above programs is to provide early childhood development services for children with disabilities, lower-income families who reside in public housing, and families who are homeless or at risk of becoming so. Along with expanding the number of hours of available subsidized childcare - and, through the creation of evening and weekend programming, which increases the flexibility of that childcare - VSA Arts of Vermont's goal is to contribute to the emphasis on quality care that will insure children who are at-risk receive the necessary supports for healthy development.

Home Who We Are Opportunities for Educators Advice for Parents ... Support for Kids "Bargaining for Quality" By Angelo J. Dorta, Vermont-NEA President As described in last month's Vermont-NEA Today, Education Week's recent "Quality Counts 2000: Who Should Teach?" report discovered a "salary gap" that mirrored an analysis of Vermont teacher salaries commissioned by Vermont-NEA last summer and publicized at the start of this school year. "While the prosperity train raced across the nation in the latter half of the 1990s, teachers have been left at the station," concludes Education Week. "From 1994-1998, salaries for bachelor's degree holders outside of education have increased 17%, or $6,808, after adjusting for inflation. And the average salary for people with master's degrees in non-teaching fields increased 32% over inflation, or $17,505. The average inflation-adjusted salary for teachers with either degree increased less than one percent over the same period. "

Practices That Represent Partnership Activities
Section IV
Community Involvement
Partnerships, by definition, depend on some form of community involvement. Earlier sections of this document discuss community involvement in terms of recruitment, provision of student support services, and roles in school-to-work transition activities. The following descriptions detail two of the more unusual means of involving community members, parents, and others in partnership endeavors. One is included because successful efforts to involve parents in activities that help support educational reform were rare among the partnerships we studied. Another is included as an example of both a practical and a political tool. The third brought the entire community together. Common to the practices was their function in creating willingness to support educational activities and build relationships with schools.

Looking for Schools with Teaching Degrees Working as a Teacher in Vermont Teachers act as facilitators or coaches, using interactive discussions and “hands-on” approaches to help students learn and apply concepts in subjects such as science, mathematics, or English. They utilize “props” or “manipulatives” to help children understand abstract concepts, solve problems, and develop critical thought processes. For example, they teach the concepts of numbers or of addition and subtraction by playing board games. As the children get older, the teachers use more sophisticated materials, such as science apparatus, cameras, or computers.

Promote and support efforts to enhance the legal research capacity available on "justusnet," the judiciary's secure, internal website. Substantial progress will be made on development of sections of the electronic benchbook and model jury charges. Judges will be trained on how to do legal research on the web (the benchbook, westlaw and other materials) and then how to use word processing tools to draft their opinions. Make litigant records kept in any court in the state available to judges in accordance with policies established by the Supreme Court. Personal computers will be installed and operational in a least 14 Family Court courtrooms. 3. Continue efforts to provide quality alternatives to traditional, adversarial dispute resolution . Evaluate the innovative approaches developed in the family court under the "cartel's" project, and with the civil rules committee, evaluate civil experimental rule 16.3; recommend whether to advance these programs by 2/1/03. With PPIC, write a progress report on its implementation of the 1997 "goldenrod" report recommendations in abuse and neglect cases; the report will address the additional demands on the court system generated by ASFA and the courts' compliance with ASFA regulations and will include data on the two "pilot" courts and their accomplishments. Examine other areas where ADR may be appropriate.

Health Education
Education Statute Title 16, Part 2, Chapter 23, Subchapter 1, Section 906 requires "Physical education and comprehensive health education including the effects of tobacco, alcoholic drinks, and drugs on the human system and on society;" however grades, levels, or amount of instruction time are not specified. Education Statute Title 16, Part 1, Chapter 1, Subchapter 7, Section 131 (1987) defines a comprehensive health education program as "a systematic and extensive elementary and secondary educational program designed to provide a variety of learning experiences based upon knowledge of the human organism as it functions within its environment;" but again this statute does not specify grades, levels, or amounts of instruction. Health education is not a coursework requirement for high school graduation.
