VUHS plan gets nod in big turnout in ANwSU

Posted on March 3, 2016 |
By Andy Kirkaldy



VERGENNES — Addison Northwest Supervisory Union voters on Tuesday gave a $10,026,000 Vergennes Union High School budget proposal a narrow victory, 1,495-1,370. The budget calls for a 2.23 percent cut from current spending.

In percentage terms, the margin translates to a 52-48 percent decision in strong turnout in the five ANwSU communities. The presidential primary and the ANwSU unification vote (the measure passed; see story) helped bring voters to polling places, which exceeded 50 percent turnout in several towns.

By Andy Kirkaldy



VERGENNES — Residents in each of the five communities that make up Addison Northwest Supervisory Union on Tuesday approved by wide margins the plan to unify the district under the governance of one board, effective July 1, 2017.

As of that date, ANwSU will become the Addison Northwest Unified District (ANwUD) and a 12-member board will operate it, with four members each from Vergennes and Ferrisburgh, two from Addison, and one each from Panton and Waltham.

That board will operate the four district schools under one budget.

For fourth time, Vergennes-area towns to vote on one-board plan

Posted on February 25, 2016 |
By Andy Kirkaldy



VERGENNES — For the fourth time since 2005, on March 1 residents of the five communities that make up Addison Northwest Supervisory Union will decide if one board, not the current five, should run their four schools.

A yes vote on Tuesday in all five towns would create the Addison Northwest Unified School District and a 12-member board to operate it, effective July 1, 2017, after a year of planning during which the existing ANwSU boards would still call the shots.

Australian ballot voting will take place in each of the five towns.
