Bristol-area school district is looking for a new name
BRISTOL — The voters of the five-town school district last fall voted to consolidate governance and budgeting, now residents of Starksboro, New Haven, Monkton, Lincoln and Bristol and being asked to suggest a new name for the school district.
The unified school board has formed a Renaming Committee that is seeking name suggestions through an online survey that can be taken here: www.surveymonkey.com/r/ANESD_Name. The committee is looking for responses by end of day May 5.
Creative ideas are welcome!
Some Vermont communities have stayed with their old supervisory union name, like Addison Northwest School District in the Vergennes area. Other communities have gone with their high school name, like Champlain Valley School District. Still others have come up with an entirely new name, based on something their area is known for. Some examples of this approach are Maple Run School District and Slate Valley School District.
After received suggestions via the online survey, the naming committee, which consists of Jodi Bachand, Liz Sayre and Jen Stanley, will review input and narrow it down to a few choices. A second survey with a few final name choices will be sent out. The Renaming Committee expects to present a recommendation to the full unified school district board at its May 23 meeting.
