Opinion: ANeSU is right on track
I have been closely following the events in the Addison Northeast Supervisory Union — the failed budgets of some of our schools as well as the issues that have arisen around the leadership of Superintendent David Adams. I have attended many meetings of different boards over the past month as the community and employees of the district have sought to gain insight and clarity into the situation.
The statement issued by the ANESU executive committee on Thursday night gives me hope that the district is beginning to make progress. The statement reflects movement and investment in and towards more effective governance as well as engagement and participation from both the employees and students of the district and community members.
I would like to publicly thank the efforts of the ANESU executive committee for their diligence in working on this very difficult situation. Dawn Griswold, chair, Mary Beth Stilwell, Louis DuPont, Krista Siringo, Marikate Kelley and Brad Bull have spent countless hours together — collaborating, seeking input and ultimately developing a plan that can begin to heal and chart a new course for the district.
I encourage community members to continue to be engaged in this process and am grateful for the efforts of our elected school board members for their perseverance through this lengthy and tangled process.
