Public invited to discuss ANwSU unification

Posted on October 25, 2015 |
By Andy Kirkaldy



VERGENNES — The Addison Northwest Supervisory Union Act 46 Study Committee is inviting residents of the five union towns to an Oct. 28 forum to learn more and ask questions about potential ANwSU unification under Vermont’s new education law, Act 46.

Act 46 created more incentives than were available when ANwSU previously considered unification, and also for the first time created penalties for those that do not do so in a timely manner.

The forum on this coming Wednesday will run from 6 to 8 p.m. in the Vergennes Union High School library.

MIDDLEBURY — You’ll have to excuse educators with the county’s Diversified Occupations (D.O.) program if they are a little perplexed these days.

On the one hand, the Vermont Public Broadcasting Service has just hailed D.O. as one of four exemplary “champions” of education in Vermont for 2015, an honor that will include an award and a televised tribute during the month of September.

Opinion: ANwSU tax story error explained

Posted on August 13, 2015 |
By JoAn Canning



I am writing to address and accept responsibility for the discrepancy reported in the July 20, 2015, Addison Independent between estimated tax rates Addison Northwest Supervisory Union reported to the public and the actual tax rates issued by the state.

All the Patricia Hannaford Career Center expenditures were required to be included in the tax rate calculation and were not. This caused the estimated tax rates we provided to the public to be understated. It was an error and I accept full responsibility for it.

Posted on July 23, 2015 |
By Andy Kirkaldy



VERGENNES — The Department of Education’s release late last week of final homestead education tax rates allowed Addison Northwest Supervisory Union towns to begin setting their overall tax rates, which in Addison, Ferrisburgh and Vergennes have increased by a range of 3.2 percent in Addison to 6.2 percent in Ferrisburgh.

Underlying those increases are residential school tax hikes that were in a range between 6.4 percent in Ferrisburgh and 7.1 percent in Vergennes.

By Andy Kirkaldy



VERGENNES — One race on the Vergennes Town Meeting Day ballot offers a rematch of a 2012 contest decided by a single vote: Former multi-term incumbent Vergennes Union Elementary School board director Cheryl Brinkman is challenging incumbent Susan Ferland, the woman who unseated her three years ago, 329-328.

This time around, both are seeking a three-year term on the VUES board. A two-year term on the VUES board is also coming open, with Sue Rakowski running unopposed for that seat.
