VT Parents and Community Members Attend Conference to Discuss ESSA

August 11, 2016

ESSA was discussed by more than 150 parents and community members who attended a conference at the Jay Peak Resort last week. According to Agency of Education Secretary Rebecca Holcombe, “The conference was well attended, and in the past few months we’ve had input from more than 1,000 Vermonters from every corner of the state.” Input from educators and community members at the retreat will help the Agency of Education to reflect the priorities and values of Vermonters in the final Plan document. “We are way ahead in our schedule,” said Susan Koch, conference participant and 2016 Vermont Teacher of the Year.
