By Addison Independent

By John Flowers



MIDDLEBURY — The UD-3 school board on Tuesday got a glimpse of how the Middlebury-area student population is performing under current state and local measuring sticks — and got a preview of how students will be gauged under a new, national assessment program that will be in place come 2015.
