Vergennes, Vermont Kicks Off Competency Education

September 19, 2012 by

Beth Miller, Director of Research and Evaluation at Nellie Mae Education Foundation just let me know that  Vergennes Union High School is in the news. VUHS is one of the Profiency-based Pathways grantees (a report will be released next month).

In the article, Kristine Kirkaldy of VUNHS said, “It’s about learning how to learn. The better you are at it, the better you are able to acquire the skills such as critical thinking, reasoning, problem-solving.”

Even though it’s not in the news article, I think it’s worth mentioning VUHS’ mission. It’s a powerful one, and for all the districts and schools re-thinking their mission and purpose, I thought it was worth sharing.
