ANeSU seeks public input as it considers unification
MONKTON — The Addison Northeast Supervisory Union’s Act 46 Study Committee is studying the benefits and challenges of complying with the law that encourages towns in supervisory unions to merge administration of their schools under a single budget that is overseen by one board.
The committee is seeking feedback from everyone in the five-town area. Committee members are specifically asking for community input on the benefits and challenges to help them weigh priorities and consider how to structure a possible union.
This Wednesday evening it will host a meeting at Monkton Central School to get feedback and update the public on its study so far. The meeting will begin at 6:30 p.m.
Feedback is also being sought through an ANeSU Act 46 Community Survey. Residents may take the survey online until Friday, May 6, at www.surveymonkey.com/r/W879FS6. Paper copies of the survey are available at any ANeSU elementary school (Bristol, Lincoln, Monkton, Robinson in Starksboro and Beeman in New Haven), Mount Abraham Union High School, town clerks’ offices and libraries in the five-town area, and at Jerusalem Store in Starksboro.
