Vermont-Certified Teachers Only

State law offers several options for annually assessing the progress of a home schooled child in Vermont. One family in southern Vermont recently employed a teacher certified in the State of Maine to assess their child’s progress. But the Vermont Department of Education informed the family that the assessment would be rejected because the teacher was not certified in Vermont.

Vermont Statute Annotated Title 16, § 166b(d) states that a teacher conducting an assessment must be certified in Vermont. Although an appeal was made to the state department of education to accept the first assessment, the department refused. The mother will have little choice but to arrange a second assessment.
