The unification proposal recommends ANESU schools become one supervisory district, with one school board and one budget for all ANESU schools. Unification supports many initiatives already underway, and allows our teachers and administrators to focus more time on teaching and learning. In addition, unification continues important progress in consolidating many expenses across the supervisory Union, and allows us to take advantage of tax and financial savings available to districts that voluntarily merge.

The unification proposal is the result of many months of deliberations of a study committee formed from representatives of all five towns (Bristol, Lincoln, Monkton, New Haven and Starksboro). The complete report of the committee including the Articles of Agreement can be found at tiny.cc/unification-report.  Please bring your questions to an information session next week. You can also email comments or questions to unification@anesu.org. We are better together.
