About CSPD

Vermont’s Comprehensive System of Personnel Development
“Integrating, aligning and coordinating Vermont’s Early Childhood system
to support and retain qualified personnel.”

Vermont receives Technical Assistance from the Early Childhood Personnel Center. Their website provides abundant information about CSPD: http://ecpcta.org/cspd/

An effective proffesional development system must coordinate and address state needs for:

  • the number of personnel (Recruitment &Retention)
  • the degree to which those personnel are supported (Preservice and Inservice Personnel Development)
  • And the degree to which those personnel are qualified for their roles in the service system (State Personnel Standards)

Between February and June 5th, 2016, Vermont gathered input from a diverse range of stakeholders in assessing the current quality indicators of Vermont’ existing CSPD.  We scored ourselves across the 12 quality indicators listed below.
