Expert Series

The Expert (Digging Deep) Series is designed to provide Vermont educators with the opportunity to learn from and engage with experts who have established credibility in creating Instructional Practices, Flexible Pathways, Local Comprehensive Assessments and Proficiency-Based Learning (PBL) Systems.

Current Offerings
