State of Vermont Academic Standards
What are the Vermont Academic Standards?
A standard is a benchmark indicator your child is expected to reach by the completion of his/her grade.
Example of a Standard: Grade 1 Mathematics
Demonstrates understanding of the relative magnitude of numbers from 0 to 100 by ordering whole numbers; by comparing whole numbers to each other or to benchmark numbers (10, 25, 50); by showing the relationship between whole numbers (1 more, 1 less; 10 more, 10 less); or by connecting number words and numerals to the quantities they represent using models, representations, or number lines.
