CVEDC-ESA is one of the leading professional learning partners in Vermont for educators and educational leaders.  Through our relationships with our member districts’ leadership, higher education, and strong national experts, as well as regional leading practitioners, we bring affordable opportunities for learning, collaboration, and provide connections to the current education initiatives facing our state. 

Our courses, series, leadership cohorts, workshops and institutes focus on high-quality, high-impact teaching strategies and the systems that support them. Whether you are learning with CVEDC in a regional event center or in the CVEDC ZoomRoom-iClassroom, we want the experience to be engaging, thought-provoking, and most importantly, impactful on your practice.

In the 2019-20 school year, you will see us continue with Standards-Based (proficiency-based) learning opportunities, personalized approaches to your own teaching and for our offerings to you, Coaching Corner breakouts for your team to learn how to extend the reach of the new strategies, and with a focus on EQUITY we are pleased to bring in Courageous Conversations (PEG) to offer institutes in Beyond Diversity and the LEADS Administrator series. Member sign-ups through April 24th, then registration will open below.  We will continue to support finding balance in your own lives and in the classroom with Mindfulness offerings, and content specific best practices in content areas.

CVEDC believes that it is critical to support our leaders and coaches as they embark on their leadership journey with a cohort to learn with and facilitators who can bring them expertise and, indeed, a place to call their own network of learners. We now run cohorts (with graduate credit) for Principals, Curriculum Leaders and Educational Coaches.   Scroll down to see our offerings!
