Tarrant Institute for Innovative Education

The Tarrant Institute for Innovative Education at the University of Vermont partners with middle schools around Vermont. We provide professional development rooted in best middle grades practice, innovative technology funding, and storytelling support to educators. We believe that effective personalized learning is possible; it depends on personal learning plans (PLPs), flexible pathways for learning, and proficiency-based education, implemented school-wide.

We help educators, teams and schools make sense of personalized learning in a way that’s meaningful, and works with the school’s existing and aspirational culture.

We’re part of the College of Education and Social Services at the University of Vermont.
