The Vermont Mathematics Initiative (VMI) announces a professional development offerings for educators. Applications are now being accepted and can be accessed from below. The opportunity is a good use of Elementary and Secondary School Emergency Relief (ESSER) Funds and provides an excellent way for a school to increase leadership capacity in mathematics and consider long term, strategic approaches to addressing mathematics achievement concerns

Offered in partnership with Vermont State University (VTSU), the VMI Master’s Program is a three-year, comprehensive mathematics professional development program. Now in its twenty-fifth year, the mission of the VMI Master’s program is to significantly improve the teaching and learning of mathematics in grades PreK-12 across the states of Vermont and New Hampshire.

Through their VMI experience, teachers build strong mathematics content knowledge, develop the ability to conduct action research around mathematics education issues, cultivate leadership skills, and apply this acquired knowledge and skill in their classrooms and at the school or district level to improve student learning.

  • The program, held in the Burlington area, is cohort based and commences the weeks of July 8 and 15, 2024
  • Academic year courses are held on Friday/Saturday “weekends”: three during the fall semester and three during the spring semester.
  • Summer courses are held two weeks during July each summer. 

Upon completing the full three-year VMI program, a teacher will have earned 36 graduate credits and will have completed all of the requirements for the Master of Education (M.Ed) degree from VTSU.
