Celebrating 20 Years Supporting Quality Education for All

VT-HEC is a non-profit formed in 2000 with the mission of addressing personnel and training needs related to improving education outcomes for all students. We accomplish this by gathering together organizations and experts in a variety of areas to collaborate in the design and delivery of comprehensive, long-term and coherent programs of professional learning opportunities and school supports.

We focus our efforts on addressing areas that are of critical importance and high-need such as Early Childhood, Special Education and low-incidence disability areas such as Autism Spectrum Disorders.
