Draft budget calls for two layoffs at MUMS

Posted on November 14, 2013 |
By John Flowers



MIDDLEBURY — The UD-3 school board will spend the next six weeks fine tuning the first draft of a 2014-2015 budget of $17,157,619, a spending plan that reflects a 3.45-percent increase while resulting in a reduction of  two full-time teaching positions at Middlebury Union Middle School.

“I think it’s been a positive process,” ACSU Superintendent Peter Burrows said of the budget preparation, which will continue at the UD-3 board’s Nov. 19 meeting.

MIDDLEBURY — Carol Callahan has divided her attention among up to 20 children for each of the past 30 years.

Now Callahan, 65, is ready to downsize her “brood” — a.k.a. her students at Middlebury’s Mary Hogan Elementary School, where she has taught since the early 1980s. Callahan will be retiring this year in order to travel and devote more time to a new young person in her life — her granddaughter Daisy, who will celebrate her first birthday next month.

ADDISON — Vergennes resident Karen Florucci can’t pin down whether she was in second or third grade when she picked out her career, but the choice stuck.

In early June, Florucci will retire after 25 years teaching at Addison Central School, 21 in kindergarten and four in second grade.

Before arriving at ACS, the 1972 Castleton State College graduate taught two years of elementary school in Castleton and three years at the now-shuttered Brandon Training Center, and then for four years in the 1980s operated her own kindergarten in her Vergennes home.
