Building our Future: Action Teams Begin!

posted Jan 5, 2015, 12:13 PM by Jason LaMora

Three Action Teams are being formed, one for each of the foundational goals.  Action Teams will be developing the strategic actions or objectives to reach each foundational goal, along with the measurement tools we’ll use to assess our progress towards meeting and exceeding these goals.  More information on the specific charge of the Action Teams can be found on the attached sheet.
The Action Teams will be comprised of 6-8 members.  Members of the Action Teams will have solid background knowledge of the foundational goal area they are in charge of, in order to build a strategic plan that enables us to work effectively, collaboratively, and efficiently towards greater student success.
If you are interested in participating on an Action Team, please follow the process outlined in the attached document. Applications are due to the ACSU office by January 21, 2015.

Addison Central’s Spring into the Arts (SITA) Festival - Updated

posted Dec 17, 2014, 10:37 AM by Jason LaMora   [ updated ]

will take place beginning today, Wednesday, May 27 and  continue on Thursday, May 28, 2015 at the Mahaney Center for the Arts at Middlebury College.
With the theme of “Mapping Our Imaginary Worlds”, SITA 2015 will give students opportunities to organize and express their imaginary worlds through different art forms (to include dance, music, theater and visual arts) and inspire students to discover new worlds as they experience and analyze the work of other artists.

The main goal for SITA 2015 is for artistic expression and experience to activate the imaginations of students and adults around places that are new to them, both as places never experienced before and familiar places experienced in new ways.  

At SITA 2015, Addison Central students will share their own visual and performance art and participate in workshops with professional guest artists during the day on Wednesday, May 27 and Thursday, May 28.  There will be an evening performance on Wednesday, May 27 in the Middlebury Union High School Auditorium that will feature the ACSU Elementary Band and guest artist Jeh Kulu.  Parents and community members are invited to attend any and all of SITA 2015.  A detailed schedule will be announced later this year.

Attached below find a list of events with locations and times. 

New ACSU Vision and Mission

posted Dec 9, 2014, 9:16 AM by Jason LaMora   [ updated Dec 9, 2014, 9:24 AM ]

Thanks to the entire ACSU community for taking part in the first phase of our ACSU Strategic Plan, developing a new ACSU vision and mission. It was a testament to our strong community involvement to see so many of you come out to speak to your deep commitment in providing the best for our students.

The ACSU Executive Committee has officially ratified our new ACSU Vision and Mission statements. These statements will now be used to craft our foundational goals for the years ahead, from which we will be building the work of our ACSU Strategic Plan.

ACSU Vision Statement:
All students will reach their full academic potential and be prepared for success as engaged citizens.


ACSU Mission Statement:
Our mission is to provide an innovative, rigorous, and supportive educational community that inspires a passion for learning and cultivates empathy and responsibility.


I look forward to continuing to work together throughout the strategic plan and beyond, to support all students in reaching their full academic potential and preparing them for success as engaged citizens!

Sincerely,
Peter Burrows
