On Thursday, November 15th, Addison Central School District will host a team of educators from neighboring school systems, along with staff from the Vermont Agency of Education, as part of our triennial Integrated Field Review (IFR). The IFR is a review of documents, interviews with students, parents and staff, and observations of schools all designed to reveal common practices in a supervisory union or school district. This is a collaborative and reciprocal process, and staff members from our district will visit and review neighboring school systems in the weeks that follow.
This Integrated Field Review process leads to a written report, featuring school system-level commendations and recommendations in the areas of Academic Proficiency, Personalization, Safe Healthy Schools, High Quality Staffing and Investment Priorities, the five domains of Vermont’s Education Quality Standards. The IFR process is flexible and is not evaluative; the results of a school system’s IFR can be used at their discretion, be it to support continuous improvement planning, to create networking opportunities with neighboring districts, to guide future professional development or other.
Parents and student may be asked by your school principal to participate in this process as an interviewee. Please know that this is entirely voluntary.
Do not hesitate to reach out to your building principal with any questions or concerns.
OUR MISSION is to provide an innovative, rigorous, and supportive educational community that inspires a passion for learning and cultivates empathy and responsibility.
