Mary Hogan teacher ends lengthy tenure

Posted on June 16, 2011 |

algylayden8366.jpg

MIDDLEBURY — Mary Hogan is an almost mythical figure at the Middlebury elementary school that bears her name. The former principal retired back in 1970 and passed away in 1995, so her legacy is now largely encapsulated in black-and-white photos and historical records.

By Andy Kirkaldy



FERRISBURGH — On Tuesday, many Ferrisburgh Central School teachers wore the same ID tag while they supervised the events like egg-balancing relay races and Zumba dancing during the school’s annual Field Days, which celebrated the fast-approaching end of the school year.

GRANVILLE/HANCOCK — Granville and Hancock last month were granted a reprieve in a search for a new supervisory union — for now, at least.

In a March 2010 Town Meeting Day vote, residents of Bethel and Rochester voted to leave the Windsor Northwest Supervisory Union. Since those towns contain the only two high schools in the supervisory union, the resolutions prompted a more-than-yearlong study on closing the supervisory union by the state Board of Education.

Leicester wins appeal to state on tax issue

Posted on June 16, 2011 |
By Andrea Suozzo



LEICESTER —The town of Leicester early this year successfully appealed to the state of Vermont in the hopes of getting a more favorable education property tax rate, citing a steep decline in property sale values over the past two years.

In a relatively rare ruling, the state Department of Taxes in May approved the town’s requested adjustment to its Common Level of Appraisal, or CLA.
