Addison Northwest residents reject VUHS budget

Posted on March 6, 2014 |

VERGENNES — Addison Northwest Supervisory Union voters said no on Tuesday to a $9.73 million dollar Vergennes Union High School budget proposal, 961-747.

If the budget had passed, it would have increased spending by about 2.4 percent.

But the VUHS budget’s tax impact was projected to be more dramatic, thanks to the school’s declining enrollment and a projected budget deficit of almost $548,000 that ANwSU officials said was due to unexpected special education costs.

Posted on February 20, 2014 |
By Andy Kirkaldy



VERGENNES — Thanks to a link between the two schools, Vergennes Union Elementary School this winter is borrowing an educational fundraising tactic from Middlebury’s Mary Hogan School.

On Feb. 28, an all-school assembly at VUES will kick off that school’s “Read-a-Thon,” in which pupils can earn money for a future bonus program at VUES by reading books outside of the classroom and being paid to do so by sponsors, possibly at the suggested rate of a penny a minute.
