Champlain Valley Union High School and Mount Abraham Union Middle/High School were inducted into the League of Innovative Schools on April 30, joining 11 other secondary schools.
The league encourages innovative strategies, a network of best practices directly linked to 21st century learning and promotes greater educational equity and opportunities for all students. It is affiliated with the New England Secondary School Consortium.
“Mt. Abe and CVU are great additions to the League. I am proud of Vermont’s involvement in this consortium of New England schools who are working together to make our schools more relevant and engaging for students,” said Armando Vilaseca, secretary of education, in a press release.
CVU has designed an innovative program called Go Out and Learn to promote personalized learning plans that meet the school’s graduation requirements, providing a process for students to tailor learning to their passions and interests.
