The Vermont Reads Institute at the University of Vermont (VRI at UVM) conducts high-quality professional development and research in all areas of literacy. Working in partnership with state agencies and universities, we are dedicated to supporting school improvement and to serving all educators and children in Vermont. In our literacy reform effort, we strive to enhance teacher and administrator knowledge and expertise, promote teacher reflection and decision-making, and help schools create conditions necessary for all children to enjoy high levels of achievement.
VRI at UVM offer four distinct projects; the Literacy Leadership Initiative (Gr. K-12), Bridging Project (Gr. 3-6), Vermont Adolescent Literacy & Learning Initiative (Gr. 6-12), and Summer Institute (Gr. K-12).
