FOCUS AREAS 2005-2006
In early 2005, we became engaged in extensive
program planning and determined that we could best be of service by
narrowing and deepening our focus.
In 2005-06 and beyond, The Vermont Institutes
will focus efforts in three areas:
The decision to focus on these three core
areas is not an easy one, given the quality of the people and programs
we have offered in the past. However, we believe that this narrowing
of scope is essential given current fiscal realities. We also believe
that these areas make sense in terms of our core expertise, current
economics, potential for sustainability and, most importantly, potential
impact on educators and students.
If you have questions or would like more
information related to our plans for 2006, please contact me at VI at
802-828-0061. As always, we look forward to building and sustaining
strong partnerships with you next year and into the future.
