  • GMTCC  2019-2020 1st Year Application is live!  Applications are typically initiated through partner school counseling departments, or students themselves.  The application, along with other supporting admissions materials, may also be found at (www.gmtcc.info/admissions).  As a reminder, state and federal Law requires the CTE application process to be a blind process to student disabilities.  In order to preserve a blind process, we respectfully request that initial correspondences and applications materials do not include any information about a student's disability status, including information about IEPs or 504s.  Once a student application is received and processed, a visit is scheduled to the program in which they are applying. Admissions decisions are made based upon review of the student's application. It is only after a conditional acceptance is offered that we would receive information about student plans in order to ensure that an appropriate admissions decision is made.  The 2019-2020 Pre-Tech Application is available at the front desk and also available on the web @ (www.gmtcc.info/admissions).

  • VTVLC has an Exciting Grant-funded Announcement! If you haven't heard yet, VTVLC has an amazing NEW program available called Personalized Assessment of Student Standards or PASS for short. Students are mentored through a two-part program to develop a self-designed project and the implementation component where they demonstrate proficiency. Simply put, students work with a VTVLC teacher/mentor who supports and assesses their skills and knowledge gained by completing their self-designed project.  How does PASS work? All student candidates start with a Project Proposal and Review using the VTVLC PASS process. Once a proposal is submitted, a full review and collaboration meeting is setup with the student’s selected VTVLC teacher mentor. VTVLC then works with the student’s school to ensure maximum alignment to the local proficiency based graduation requirements.  What you should know! -The PASS program allows for flexible start and end dates. Students will be enrolled on the 1st or the 15th of the month.
    -Each project will have an anticipated end date. The teacher will help build a week by week pace chart for deliverables.
    -All of VTVLC Pass Teacher/Mentors are Vermont licensed teachers who are dedicated to support the student’s project! They will act as a guide and make suggestions as they complete their project.
