  • Early release days on the 17/18 school calendar

    Dear ANESU Families,

                Ensuring the students in our five-town community receive the best instruction we can deliver is among our highest priorities.  The body of research available to us on the most effective practices is greater today than it has ever been.  To take advantage of this research and to help ensure we are continually working to improve instruction, and therefore outcomes for our students, we need to provide ongoing professional development for every educator in our school community.  To do so we need to make time for this professional development to happen.    

    With this in mind, you will notice on the 2017-2018 school calendar that all schools in Addison Northeast Supervisory Union will have seven early release days this year.  These early release days will provide time for professional development to happen within and across our schools.  As we transition to a single district the need to work closely together is greater than ever.  Working together we can build equity in opportunity and outcomes for students.  Working together we can support one another as we operationalize our strategic plan.  Working together we can achieve great things.   

    Our early release days coincide with early release days in Addison Northwest School District (Vergennes) and Addison Central School District (Middlebury).  This coordination is important because Vergennes Union High School, Middlebury Union High School and Mt. Abraham Union High School each have students attending the Patricia A. Hannaford Career Center. These common professional development days also open doors for future collaborative work with our neighboring school districts in Addison County.  

    The early release days are scheduled for October 3, November 8, December 7, February 7, March 29, April 17 and May 16.  Dismissal times on the early release days will be as follows:

    Bristol Elementary School               11:40                     Monkton Central School                               11:50

    Lincoln Community School              11:45                     Robinson Elementary School                       11:45

    Beeman Elementary School             11:45                     Mt. Abraham Union Middle/High School      11:30

    I recognize these early release days have the potential to create challenging child care situations for some families and for that I am sorry.  Thank you for your efforts to make these professional development days a possibility.   

    Sincerely,

    Patrick J. Reen

    Superintendent

  • New Volunteer Process

    Families, Friends and Community Members

    New Volunteer Process


    To ensure the safety of all children in our district, starting July 1, 2017, all volunteers must be fingerprinted. The prints will be at no charge through Bristol PD on one of the planned dates (dates and locations TBA).  It is our hope that this will make the process more convenient for families. If at any point in the school year you volunteer, chaperone a field trip, or work with our students please follow the process below.


    If you will be volunteering the first three weeks of school, please call 802-453-6946 to schedule an appointment to be fingerprinted on 8/29/17 between 11-1 at the Bristol Police Department.  It is important that you schedule a time as we have limited space.  More dates and times for fingerprinting coming soon.


    Here is what you need to know:

    • If you think you have current results on file, please check with your school’s administrative asst. to confirm.  If you do, you will only fill out the Volunteer Registration, Criminal Record Check and Agency of Human Services Forms

    • If you do not have results on file, your school will provide you with the following forms:  Volunteer Registration, Criminal Record Check, Agency of Human Services and VCIC Fingerprint Authorization Certificate

    • Completely fill out all forms

    • You will need to bring two current forms of ID when you come for fingerprints (VT driver's license, US Passport, Military ID, birth certificate or SS card are all acceptable forms of identification)


    Frequently Asked Questions:  


    When can I start volunteering?  Once the initial check is done (2 days), you will be permitted to volunteer pending print results.  


    Do I have to do this every year?  Once the entire process is complete and we have received all results, you are permitted to volunteer for 3 years without retaking prints as long as you volunteer at least once each school year.  However, each year, you will fill out a volunteer form along with the two local background check forms.

  • A message from Superintendent Patrick Reen - May 24, 2017

    At their May 23 meeting the new school district board took action on choosing an official name for our new unified school district.  


    As you may or my not know, with the passage of Act 46 we could no longer keep Addison Northeast Supervisory Union as our name.  This created an opportunity for us to think differently about how we want to be recognized as a new district moving forward.  


    One month, two surveys and about 600 responses later the new name selected is Mount Abraham Unified School District.  The name change will take effect July 1, 2018. Thank you to all who took part in the survey.  The future's looking bright for MAUSD as we Shape Our Future Together!

Teacher and Support Staff Collective Bargaining  Information - 2015-2016

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. Teachers from each of our schools are represented by the Addison Northeast Education Association and affiliated with Vermont-National Education Association.

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.
