Vermont Annual Snapshot

Get a snapshot of the performance for any school, district or supervisory union

What the Snapshot does


The Annual Snapshot is an online tool where you can find quantitative data about Vermont schools. You can see how your school, Supervisory Union/District or the state is doing, based on measures Vermont has decided are important. The Annual Snapshot exists to support schools, not rank them. The goal of the Annual Snapshot is to encourage communities to work together to improve educational outcomes for all students.

Key Metrics

Where applicable, the Annual Snapshot measures each domain and each of the individual indicators that compose the domain in four ways.

Current Performance

Indicates the performance for the domain or indicator for the academic year selected.

Performance Change

Indicates the amount of change for the domain or indicator for the academic year selected compared to the previous academic year.

Current Equity Index

Indicates the difference in performance between students who have been historically underserved in schools compared to their historically privileged peers. Smaller differences in performance are represented by the “Meeting” or “Exceeding” rating (see below).

Equity Index Change

Indicates the amount of change for Current Equity Index for the academic year selected compared to the previous academic year.

Ratings

Reflects the calculated point value for the domain, indicator, or measure of interest. The scale that defines the icons differs for each of the Key Metrics. To see the full list of scales, please reference Point Value Equivalencies.
