“Meet Your Board Member” series continues…
In order for our members to know the individuals who serve them at the national level, NASDCTEc is presenting a blog series called “Meet Your Board Members;” today we are featuring John Fischer, Region I Representative, and State Director of Vermont. Region I encompasses Connecticut, Maine, Massachusetts, New Hampshire, Rhode Island, and Vermont.
According to the VT website, career technical education (CTE) in Vermont is delivered through a system of regional career centers aligned with high schools within each region. The CTE staff at the department provide technical assistance and support for program improvement, new program design, state and federal grant compliance and high school transformation initiatives related to CTE. Programs of Study are organized in alignment to the National Career Clusters Model.
Mr. Fischer joined the Vermont Department of Education in 2006, working with VT’s regional CTE centers and high school renewal initiatives. He became the State Director in August 2008. Prior to that, he worked in NH in the university system and the community/technical college system for 20 years, serving as the Provost and Vice President.
