Early release days on the 17/18 school calendar

posted Aug 18, 2017, 8:42 AM by Web Master

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

posted Aug 17, 2017, 8:00 AM by Web Master   [ updated Aug 31, 2017, 8:48 AM ]

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.  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:

Primary List- Valid VT Driver's License, Valid Non-Driver ID, Valid Government ID card or US Passport.  

Secondary List- Valid Credit Card with signature, Valid Student ID, SS card, Check Cashing Card with Signature, Military ID.


You can have two forms of ID from the primary list or one from each list, but not two from the secondary list.


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

posted May 10, 2017, 12:46 PM by Web Master   [ updated Jul 14, 2017, 8:46 AM ]

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!

September 2016

Hello ANESU Families,

            I hope your summer was filled with a lot of great family time!  I also hope you and your children had a chance to recharge and get ready for what is promising to be an outstanding 2016-2017 school year!  

I feel very fortunate to have the opportunity to return to work in ANESU since leaving my sixth grade classroom at Bristol Elementary School eight years ago.  I know, and have always known, ANESU does amazing things for its students and I am thrilled to return home to take part in the great work happening in my own community. 

            It has been a steep learning curve for me so far.  I am rapidly learning more and more about the scope of work before me as a superintendent.  While my responsibilities may be vast, I believe my primary role is to support principals and teachers as they work to improve the lives of children in our schools.  After all, that is the reason we, as an organization, exist.  

            I am routinely impressed by the hardworking individuals within ANESU.  To focus all of this hard work we need to come together as a five-town community to create greater clarity around the purpose and direction for our school system.  In order to achieve this I will be working with various stakeholders to develop a process to bring our five-town community together to articulate a vision for ANESU.  A common vision will assist students, staff and community members in developing a strategic plan with specific action steps needed to realize our vision.  With clarity of purpose and specific action steps we can be confident our hard work is focused on getting us where we want to be.

            These are exciting times in ANESU!  I encourage you all to take advantage of opportunities to help shape the future of our schools.  I look forward to working with you!

Sincerely,

Patrick J. Reen

Superintendent of Schools
