Do You Have a Story to Share?

We are looking to capture stories of schools and districts as they implement Education Quality Standards.  The goal of these video vignettes is to help others on their journey as they implement flexible pathways, improve proficiency-based instructional practices and develop their local comprehensive assessment system.  If your school or district has a practice to share about your implementation, please contact Gary Chapin, Meaghan Foster and Carisa Corrow.

Past Stories

In addition to recording the Expert (Digging Deep) series over the years, the Vermont PLN also collected information from Vermont educators about their practices, challenges and successes through video stories.
