Dear Parent/Guardian:

In response to current best practice and new state requirements, Rutland Central Supervisory Union schools are moving toward a Learner-Centered education model designed to help our students become self-directed learners while providing more accurate feedback about their progress to them and their families. This model includes:  

• Proficiency Based Graduation Requirements—students working toward and tracking their own progress against performance-based proficiencies as they move at their own paces to ensure success.

• Personalized Learning Plans—students working with teachers to set and meet academic and personal goals.

• Flexible Pathways—students working with teachers to identify alternative ways to access and demonstrate their learning both in and outside of school | write to invite you to our second community forum where we will share information about this model as it has been implemented thus far, and explain our change to a proficiency-based reporting system, involving a transition from the 100-point Scale to a four-point, numberless scale.

This event will be held at Proctor Jr./Sr. High School on Monday, May 16" from 6-7p.m. We hope you will be able to attend.


Sarah P. Merrill
