During each fiscal year, the Agency collects data from Vermont's supervisory unions and school districts. In addition, the Agency provides training to help school professionals provide this data.
Please contact the Agency's Helpdesk at AOE.SLDSSupportGroup@vermont.gov. with questions regarding data collections.
Elementary/Secondary School Register¶
The Vermont School Register is a student record-keeping document required by Vermont statute. The purpose of the school register is to document each of Vermont school's continuous year-to-year cycle of enrolling students, to record daily attendance, to report dropouts and graduates, and to report year-end attendance to the Agency of Education. It is the source document for calculating Average Daily Membership, which is a critical aspect in the state funding system.
