VUHS facing tough budget questions with revote due

Posted on March 26, 2014 |
By Zach Despart



VERGENNES — Members of the Vergennes Union High School board discussed for two and a half hours Monday evening how to draft a budget that would be palatable to voters, but they did not reach consensus on how, or if, to cut spending. The board also could not find common ground on how to retire the deficit from last year, and a looming deficit at the end of this year.

“I think this problem is way bigger than what we can do in this room tonight,” board member Laurie Childers said. “We have a very serious problem.”

ADDISON COUNTY — Unlike 2013, the high school boys’ basketball season did not end this winter with a local team cutting down nets.

Still, three of the four area squads fared well enough to earn home playoff games, and all were led by athletes who submitted outstanding efforts that are recognized here in the 2014 Addison Independent Boys’ Basketball All-Star Team.

Posted on March 13, 2014 |
By Zach Despart



VERGENNES — The Vergennes Union High School board on Monday began the process of drafting a new budget for the school after voters in the five Addison Northwest Supervisory Union towns rejected the original spending plan on Town Meeting Day.

Comments by VUHS board members and ANwSU officials there and afterward showed some differences on how much and even whether to cut the budget, including the need for staff reductions.

Addison Northwest residents reject VUHS budget

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.

ADDISON COUNTY — The Division II girls’ basketball playoffs got under way Tuesday, when 11th-seeded Vergennes bowed out with a loss at No. 6 Lake Region, 81-41.
