ACSU searching for new business manager
MIDDLEBURY — The Addison Central Supervisory Union is searching for a new business manager to replace Laura Nassau, who is leaving this summer to take a similar position with the Chittenden South Supervisory Union.
Nassau provided some much needed stability to the business manager position when she joined the ACSU in February of 2012. Her immediate predecessor, Paula VanMinos, had just resigned after not reporting to work for several weeks while dealing with a family illness. VanMinos’ predecessor was Sharon Stearns, who had resigned in May of 2011 after having been placed on administrative leave.
Nassau explained she is leaving for reasons of geography.
“(The CSSU) is closer to home for me,” Nassau said. “That’s really the main issue for me.”
Prior to joining the ACSU, Nassau had been business manager of the Chittenden East Supervisory Union in Richmond.
“I’ve enjoyed my time here,” she said. “This is a really solid school district, in terms of operations. There are a lot of great, talented people here, and I’m going to miss them.”
She thanked her colleagues for making her feel welcome during her two-and-a-half years with the ACSU, a district that includes Middlebury Union middle and high schools and the elementary schools in Bridport, Cornwall, Salisbury, Shoreham, Middlebury, Ripton and Weybridge.
“She’ll be missed, and really helped us establish strong fiscal management,” ACSU Superintendent Peter Burrows said of Nassau.
The business manager assists in budgeting for district schools and supervises cash management, stu- dent transportation, food service operations, facility projects and special projects within the ACSU.
An ACSU advertisement soliciting applicants for the job lists a bachelor’s degree in accounting or business-related field, relevant financial management experience, and knowledge of financial software, as among the qualifications candidates should possess.
District officials hope to have the position filled before the start of the next school year.
