ACSD spending plan passes easily

MIDDLEBURY — While other school budgets in Addison County had some difficulty finding favor with voters, the Addison Central School District budget vote proved decisive an non-controversial.
Meanwhile the technical high school that serves 17 towns in Addison County also was easily approved as warned.
Residents of the ACSD members communities of Bridport, Cornwall, Middlebury, Ripton, Salisbury, Shoreham and Weybridge collectively voted 1,620 to 501 in favor of a pre-K-through-grade-12 public education budget of $37,794,916, which will result in education spending of $17,473.81 per equalized pupil. That’s a 3.35-percent increase for the 2019-2020 academic year.
The ACSD budget covers expenses for Middlebury Union middle and high schools, and the elementary schools in the seven member-towns.
Meanwhile, citizens in 17 Addison County towns heartily endorsed, by a tally of 4,273 to 1,513, the proposed fiscal year 2020 Patricia A. Hannaford Career Center budget of $3,468,338. The plan reflects a $186 decline in total spending (compared to this year) for vocational and technical education for area students.
The Career Center serves juniors and seniors in the Addison Northwest, Addison Central and Mount Abraham union school districts.
