Dear parents and families –
The Integrated Arts Academy was identified by the Vermont Agency of Education as eligible for equity supports as stated in Vermont’s Every Student Succeeds Act plan. Schools and districts eligible for equity supports have a significant difference in student performance between at least one historically marginalized student group and their historically privileged peers. Our school was identified due to the gap in performance for the following student subgroups:
Free and Reduced Lunch (FRL)
The district, along with guidance from the VTAOE, will be providing us technical assistance as we develop our Continuous Improvement Plan to address improving the outcomes for all students, including the specific group(s). We will continue to address student needs as determined by the analysis of the data we collect. As part of that data, we look at parent survey results and other information we’ve collected from parents and the community. We thank you all for your feedback.
If you would like to be further involved in the development and ongoing implementation of our Continuous Improvement Plan, please contact us. Your support is instrumental in your child’s school success.
