A message from Superintendent Patrick Reen

     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.  Thank you to all that took part in the survey.  The future's looking bright for MAUSD as we Shape Our Future Together!

  • Vote Now! Addison Northeast District Renaming Second Survey

    You may have seen our earlier survey to collect ideas for a new name. Based on input received from this first survey, we would love to hear from you about which name you prefer. Please take a minute to share your opinion. Respond by Monday May 22.

    There are two ways to share your opinion: you can either call 453-7171 and leave a message or take a brief survey at

    Background: Residents of the Addison Northeast community voted last fall to form a unified school district including our 5 elementary schools and Mt Abe Middle/High School. An early need for our new district is to identify a new name. Rather than make this decision alone, the unified school board would like your input on a new name for the school district.

    Results and a recommendation will be shared at the full unified school district board at its May 23 meeting. 

    If you would like to know more about the unified school district, you can find information at, or join us at a regular meeting on the 4th Tuesday of the month (except July & August) at 7 pm at Mt Abe. Watch for upcoming ways to engage with your new school board and share your input.

    Thank you for taking the time to share your opinion!

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.
