Please provide funding to Vermont communities- rec departments and other community child care resources to provide affordable care for shortened and distance learning school days. Let's keep kids safe and allow parents that work in person or are essential workers to do their jobs.
I strongly believe that the best thing for students and staff is to be open full time for as long as safely possible. I strongly oppose the hybrid model, but like everything else this is beyond control. This is not what is best for students, families, or staff (especially those with children). Our data supports full time instruction at this point.
Hello. My name is Amanda and I'm a special educator. I have questions about home schooling and children on IEPs. If a parent wants to homeschooled in the fall, does the students IEPs rights get revoked? Can the parent start public education and then decide to homeschooled? Can a child receive his or her services via virtual and parent can still homeschool?
Thank you for your time
Where are all the new air filtrations systems? PPE? Extra staff to sanitize the bathrooms after each and every use? Oh wait.....the teachers and paras will do all that. What a S**tshow.

We asked our 2022 Teacher of the Year, Karen McCalla, 'What led you to become a teacher/librarian?'

She said, "When I started college, I was as a history major, but I thought I should try to figure out how I might make money post-graduation. I wouldn’t have listed teaching as a career choice early in college, but as I went along at Castleton and saw the great instruction happening there, I started thinking that education could be my calling. School librarianship was always my goal, but there’s no undergrad degree in Librarianship, so I finished my undergrad at Castleton and worked for a few years before heading to the University of Michigan to do my graduate work. My mom worked in libraries the entire time I was growing up and she was a big inspiration."
