ANWSD School Board

The Addison Northwest School District Board includes 12 School Directors elected to represent our five communities:  Addison, Ferrisburgh, Panton, Vergennes, and Waltham.

The Board provides fiscal oversight, policy development, and other resources to enable teachers, administrators, and staff members to prepare students to meet standards set by the state and federal agencies.

The School Board meets on the second and third Monday of each month at the Vergennes Union High Schol, unless specified otherwise.  Meetings start at 6:00 p.m.  To find their next meeting date, visit Board Meeting Schedules.   All meetings are currently held in person, following COVID-19 mask-wearing protocols.

ANWSD Board Statement Reaffirming its Commitment to Safe, Civil, and Anti-Racist Schools

The Superintendent and Directors of the Addison Northwest School District wish to reassure the members of our educational community in these uncertain times. We remain committed to maintaining safe and welcoming schools regardless of race, gender, disability, national origin, documentation, religion, sexual orientation, political orientation, or family income. In addition to compliance with the law, we also have a moral and ethical duty to protect all who pass through the doors of our schools and to provide our students with an equitable education.

The Board emphatically endorses and supports a learning environment and shared community void of hate, bias, bigotry, and racism. We condemn white supremacy and unequivocally believe that Black lives matter. We charge the members of the ANWSD community with creating a safe, civil, and kind learning environment. Everyone -- parents, students, staff, board members, community members -- must take seriously the need to speak openly against hate of all kinds. We will recognize, respond to, and redress bias and inequities in our systems, policies, and practices. We will create and sustain an equitable learning environment in which we treat one another with respect and dignity. We can each lead through example, and with this statement the ANWSD Board hereby reaffirms its commitment to providing an equitable, just, and inclusive learning environment for all students.
