May 26 Presentation: Different Models for ANESU Negotiations

ANESU is exploring different models for contract negotiations.  Come learn about them at a

Presentation by Federal Mediator Cynthia Jeffries on Thursday, May 26, 2016 from 6:30-8:30pm in the Mt. Abraham Auditorium.

As part of ANESU’s ongoing work with the Federal Mediation and Conciliation Service (FMCS), we’re sponsoring an informational session about alternative bargaining models that could be used during the next round of contract negotiations slated to begin in the fall of 2016. Mediator Cynthia Jeffries from FMCS will compare and contrast three different bargaining models.  A question and answer session will follow, with an opportunity for attendees to provide written feedback.

We encourage all ANESU employees, board members, families, students, families, and community members to attend.  For more information, please call 453-6901.

Addison County Truancy Protocols with Letter of Clarification

Dear ANESU Families,                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                    December 17th, 2015


I hope this message finds you well. I believe there has been a misinterpretation of the Addison County Truancy Protocols enacted last fall.  The purpose of this letter is to offer clarity regarding those protocols currently in use.  I believe this misinterpretation has caused undue angst for families.  All of the schools in Addison County developed the same protocols last year in an effort to ensure that our learners are in school as much as possible and that support is provided for families when there is a problem.  A “Level” system was created (see attached) and I think the misunderstanding is where it says “including prior year or term”.  The only time the number of absences from the prior school year are taken into account is when a child has reached Level 3 and there has been no good faith effort on the part of the family or guardian to improve his/her attendance.  We need to be aware of patterns of absences so we can help families and make sure that our students are coming to school.   


We are very aware that illnesses and unforeseen events happen in families that lead to absences.  We are sensitive to the needs of all of our learners and encourage parents and guardians to communicate with school personnel when issues occur so we can work together to support the child.   


In closing, I would also like to remind folks that when misunderstandings such as these occur, it’s helpful to communicate through means that can actually be helpful.  My staff and I are always available to provide assistance.


Wishing you a very Happy New Year,


Armando Vilaseca

Volunteer Application Processs

Volunteer Application Process

Our volunteers do great work in supporting our students and we appreciate all the time and effort that is put into enhancing our students’ learning experience. This year we are tightening up our volunteer process.  We want to be clear about the volunteer process and what is needed from our volunteers. From this point forward, anyone volunteering with our students must first fill out a volunteer application.  It is a simple application giving permission for a criminal records check.  This process should be completed in full before anyone works with or is around children, and that includes field trips.  As always, it is our practice that volunteers are under the immediate supervision of a licensed professional employee of the school district, and will not have unsupervised contact with students.  If you plan to volunteer now or in the future, please stop by the school office or look on our website under forms for the application. (Only the 1st, 2nd and 4th pages need to be filled out).   We urge volunteers to fill out the application as soon as possible as  the paperwork turnaround takes 3 to 5 days.

Here are a few examples of people who need to complete this form:

Classroom volunteers (including specials)

Four Winds volunteers

Foster grandparents

Field trip chaperones/drivers(along with the driver checklist)

Work study students

6th grade field trip (This process will be different since it is an overnight trip, and needs to get started well in advance of the trip)
