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.
