VERGENNES — Addison Northwest Supervisory Union residents on Tuesday backed a plan for one 12-member board to own and operate Addison Central, Ferrisburgh Central, Vergennes Union Elementary and Vergennes Union High schools.

The overall vote was 764-466, or roughly 62-38 percent, and in four of the five towns at least 60 percent of voters favored the measure.

Those towns were Ferrisburgh (where the vote ran 270-161), Panton (62-15), Vergennes (191-124) and Waltham (64-16).

ANwSU unification vote on tap

VERGENNES — Residents of the five Addison Northwest Supervisory Union communities will on Tuesday once again decide if ANwSU should unify under one-board governance.

They did so in March 2010 by a 908-539 margin. Big majorities in all five communities backed a 12-member board to own and operate the four ANwSU schools.

But Addison and Vergennes residents petitioned the result, and in May Addison reversed its 197-138 vote in favor with a 191-148 tally against the Unified Union (UU) plan.

VERGENNES — The recent release of last fall’s New England Common Assessment Practice (NECAP) test scores brought mixed news to Addison Northwest Supervisory Union, ranging from positive results at Addison Central School that earned statewide notice to stagnant math scores at Vergennes Union High School that disappointed local administrators.

Results at Vergennes Union Elementary and Ferrisburgh and Addison central schools bettered state averages, and students at VUES, FCS and ACS also showed improved math and English test scores over time.

By Andy Kirkaldy



VERGENNES — On March 1, residents of Addison, Ferrisburgh, Panton and Waltham will be offered a choice on how their towns will in the future fund the Bixby Free Memorial Library.

The Vergennes library, which serves the four towns as well as its host city, has always been listed on the Town Meeting Day ballot in each community as a charitable entity making a specific funding request — except in Vergennes, where aldermen have always included the library in their budget.

VERGENNES — Voters in the five Addison Northwest Supervisory Union towns who want to learn more about the proposed unification of ANwSU governance under one board have a number of ways to do so before March 1 voting in each town.

ANwSU officials have scheduled one more informational forum devoted solely to unification — at the Addison Central School on Tuesday, Feb. 8, at 7 p.m.

ANwSU Superintendent Tom O’Brien also said unification questions will be welcome at school meetings in Addison and Ferrisburgh and at the annual meetings for Vergennes Union high and elementary schools.

Alderwoman bows out; Addison races loom

By Andy Kirkaldy



VERGENNES — Few races for elective office in March are shaping up in the five-town Vergennes area, but the Little City will have one new alderman, while a persistent Addison critic of Addison Northwest Supervisory Union unification is seeking two seats on school boards, including on the one panel that would govern ANwSU if that measure is approved.

The new member of the Vergennes City Council will replace two-term incumbent Christine Collette, who opted to step down for what she called four good reasons — that’s the number of grandchildren she has.
