ACSU delays action on Willey

Posted on February 22, 2010 |
By John Flowers



MIDDLEBURY — The Addison Central Supervisory Union (ACSU) board on Wednesday chose not to take action on Associate Superintendent Janice Willey’s letter of resignation and instead ordered a study of the working climate in the district office.

The ACSU board reached that decision after a lengthy executive session during which members discussed Willey’s letter, which she submitted this past Dec. 14. Willey had cited a sudden change in her duties — allegedly without her input — as the reason for her decision to step down this June after 14 years as associate superintendent.

By John Flowers



MIDDLEBURY — Officials in the UD-3 school district on Tuesday gave an update on how they are responding to a petition seeking to boost academic excellence at Middlebury Union High School, and pledged to consider additional changes as curriculum is developed for the 2010-2011 school year.

At issue is a citizens’ petition submitted to the UD-3 school board last year by a group of parents and community members. The petition, signed by more than 400 people, raised concerns about the extent to which students are academically challenged at MUHS.

BRISTOL — When Mount Abraham Union High School senior Harper Davis struck up a conversation with the members of the band The Kin after a concert last September, the New Haven youth had no idea what was to follow: a promise to play at his high school, the mind-boggling work of planning a professional concert, and the excitement of a major musical event a few months down the line.

Hancock, Granville reflect after schools close doors

Posted on February 4, 2010 |
By Kathryn Flagg



HANCOCK/GRANVILLE — These days, the tiny villages of Hancock and Granville are ghost towns.

At least, that’s what they’re deemed in educational parlance. When the two towns last year decided to shut down their joint Village School, they joined a growing number of small towns in Vermont that have decided to close their schools and tuition their students to schools beyond the towns’ borders.

ID-4 directors propose budget increase of 1/52%

Posted on February 1, 2010 |
By John Flowers



MIDDLEBURY — Middlebury voters on April 14 will consider a proposed Mary Hogan Elementary School budget of $5,771,990, representing a 1.52-percent increase in spending compared to this year.

The budget reflects no new programs, nor additional teaching staff. It actually represents a decrease of $87 in spending per pupil (from $13,539 to $13,452). That’s in large part because the school anticipates welcoming eight additional students next year, for a potential total of 395, according to Mary Hogan Elementary School Associate Principal Tom Buzzell.
