Introduction to the Leadership Team for Educational Excellence - The Leadership Team for Excellence in Education (LTEE) has been formed in the WWSU to guide our ongoing school improvement work. The world is changing and so must our education system! Act 77 and the new Vermont Education Quality Standards (EQS) are new pieces of legislation that jumpstart the state’s efforts to “remodel” education and learning, so that Vermont can fully meet the challenges of the 21st century. We know more than ever about how students learn, and it’s time to bring this new knowledge into our classrooms and communities. The WWSU Leadership Team for Educational Excellence strives to bring the highest-quality educational experiences to all young people in the Washington West Supervisory Union. Team members include administrators and staff from each school and will meet monthly to guide the work. Currently, the team consists of the following members:
