Those trends are present...

Milton Town School District was selected as one of 10 supervisory unions and districts around the state to undergo a special education services review, the Vermont Agency of Education announced last week. The review will pit current special education systems against “research-based best practices” in hopes of identifying efficiencies and cost savings, an AOE press release said.  “I’m just really looking forward to [learning] what are some things we haven’t thought that we might do better,” superintendent Ann Bradshaw said.
