MONTPELIER, Vt. (AP) - The Vermont Agency of Education is going to be providing more information to the U.S. Department of Education about how the state plans to measure student progress under the federal Every Student Succeeds Act.

The act, signed by former President Barack Obama in late 2015, replaced the No Child Left Behind Act.

Vermont Public Radio (https://bit.ly/2w70CMV ) reports the state was one of the first to submit a plan before the U.S. Department of Education, which last week sent a request for more information.

Vermont’s plan seeks to measure school quality, assess student performance and rate schools.

Vermont Deputy Secretary Amy Fowler says the state wants to convince the U.S. Education Department its plan is sound while moving away from single-year test scores.
