Opinion: ACSU consolidation seen not as choice, but 'coercion'

Posted on February 15, 2016 |
By Wendy Leeds



Those who support school board consolidation say we should vote yes because: 1) it’s better for students, and 2) it’s better for our pocketbooks. At one of the first meetings back in the fall I asked this question: “How — specifically — will the experience of, for example, a third-grader in this school be improved by school board unification? Take his experience now and compare it to post-unification. How will it be better?” No one could answer.

Opinion: Proposed ACSU structure flawed

Posted on February 15, 2016 |
By Peter Lynch



Unfortunately, the representational structure of the proposed Addison Central School District is flawed.

I say unfortunately because I have long held that single board governance for the district makes sense. My experience a decade ago as a Shoreham school director confirmed this. It makes sense in terms of improving educational services for students. A single board working with a forward-thinking central administration would make it much easier to develop and deliver a well-coordinated K-12 experience for all of our students.

New OVUU district towns to face first school budget votes

Posted on February 11, 2016 |
By Lee Kahrs



BRANDON — Voters in the eight towns in the Rutland Northeast Supervisory Union school district will see three school budgets on their upcoming town meeting warnings, but it is likely that the vote on only one of those budgets will count.

That’s because those voters last month approved the new Otter Valley Unified Union School District under the Act 46 school consolidation law, but the towns warned school budgets under both the old system and the new one since that vote could still be petitioned for reconsideration.
