Progress continues to be made toward the development of a strategic plan for ANESU/ANESD. Recently, the ANESU leadership team reviewed feedback from approximately 160 people on four draft goal statements.

Collective bargaining negotiations for a successor agreement between the Addison Northeast Supervisory Union, its member districts and its teachers are now under way. Vermont statutes require school districts to form Bargaining Councils for the purpose of negotiating contracts and each school district within the ANESU has appointed members to serve on the ANESU Bargaining Council.

All school district meetings are publically warned and conducted in accordance with Vermont open meeting legal requirements. The meetings have been filmed by NEAT TV and minutes of the meetings are taken and posted electronically on the district’s website.
