ADDISON COUNTY — As cell phones become an integral part of cultural, social and intellectual life, county schools are re-evaluating their approaches to student use of the electronic gizmos — and coming up with some very different policies.

While administrators at Vergennes Union High School this week temporarily instituted new, stricter cell phone rules, Middlebury Union High School was getting ready to loosen its rules at the end of a lengthy evaluation process.

MIDDLEBURY — For 16 Middlebury College students, the average weekday this January includes studying neuroscience, selling books, learning to haggle, doing market research for a local dairy farm and meeting an ex-CIA spy.

Their MiddCORE course isn’t targeted for those students who are hoping to get out on the ski slopes often during the one-class J-term semester. Instead, they spend at least eight hours each weekday learning about business and entrepreneurship with guest speakers and competitive challenges.

BRISTOL — The snow-covered field behind the red schoolhouse off Hardscrabble Road in Bristol was filled with the sounds of industry and eager voices Monday morning. A young boy wielded an axe as another stood by critiquing his stance.

“Legs wide so you don’t chop off your feet,” the second boy said, and the first boy brought the axe down deliberately on a piece of wood, splitting it down the middle. A young girl took the splinters to the outdoor cob oven for kindling.

By Tamara Hilmes



BRISTOL — Will Parini has the contract negotiation blues.

Parini, a new music teacher at Bristol and Starksboro elementary schools, stood up in front of a nearly full auditorium of Addison Northeast Supervisory Union teachers, board members and residents at Mount Abraham Union High School last Wednesday night and sang about the woes of the impasse reached on Dec. 16.

Parini was the last to speak in the discussion leading up to the negotiation committee’s vote to impose the ANeSU school boards’ final proposal as the terms for the 2010-2011 teachers’ contract.

ADDISON — A Thursday meeting called by an Addison resident and opponent of Addison Northwest Supervisory Union unification drew 16 other town residents to Addison Central School, but most who attended said they backed unification and were skeptical of the other options, a private town academy and/or a voucher system.

The headmaster of The Mountain School at Winhall, Daren Houck, also said on Friday that some statements in the flyer promoting the meeting and made at the meeting by organizer Carol Kauffman about the intentions of Mountain School officials were inaccurate.

BRISTOL — The Mount Abraham Union High School board is slashing an additional $174,000 from its 2011-2012 educational spending plan after receiving word this week that the Bristol school will post a projected $111,000 deficit this year.

A recently completed audit revealed a significant drop in Mount Abe’s projected revenues for next year that forced Co-principals Andy Kepes and Leon Wheeler to go back and make more spending cuts on top of the $266,767 that was eliminated earlier in the budget planning process.
