Search for a New Superintendent for FNESU

The FNESU board has contracted the Vermont School Boards Association to assist in the search for Superintendent. As part of that process, VSBA will be convening a Candidate Screening Committee with the authority to guide the initial superintendent screening process.

The committee has two slots for board members, two slots for building administrators, one slot for a Central Office administrator, three slots for teachers, two slots for support staff, two slots for community members, and one student slot.

If you are interested in filling one of the two community member seats, please contact Shirley Carlson ( or Morgan Daybell (, or at 848-7661, by this Thursday, February 23. Committee members will need to commit to at least five evening meetings before the end of April. If more than two community members are interested, two names will be drawn at random, with representation from different towns.

Franklin Northeast Supervisory Union comprises 5 rural towns; Bakersfield, Enosburg, Berkshire, Montgomery, and Richford, Vermont nestled between the Lake Champlain valley and Jay Peak.  FNESU consists of five Elementary Schools, two Middle Schools, two High Schools, and one Technical Career Center.

Smarter Balanced Assessment: Another Measure of Learning

Rebecca Holcombe, the Vermont Secretary of Education, recently wrote a memo to parents and caregivers regarding the Smarter Balanced Assessment.  This is the new state test and it replaces NECAPs.

School Choice

The school choice letter provides information about opportunities for Enosburg and Richford students who will be in grades 9-12 next school year. Vermont is continuing to allow universal high school choice. Therefore, Enosburg and Richford high school students can attend any high school in Vermont provided there is capacity in that school.

National School Lunch Program

The Vermont Agency of Education Child Nutrition Programs announced its policy for free or reduced-price meals for children served under the National School Lunch Program (NSLP), the School Breakfast Program (SBP), and the After-School Snack Program (ASP).
