Dominican Republic Trip – Donations Sought

You Can help a family in Need!

The second annual Dominican Republic trip will be from June 26 to July 3.  We are going to build a house for a needy family.  We still have a couple spots for the trip, which thanks to the Byrne Foundation and their very generous donation, will only cost $850 per student. (down from an original cost of $1,487)  The $850 includes ALL in-country expenses and a round trip airline ticket with a free bag even!  Students need a passport, which costs less than $150.  If you are interested in going, please contact Wendy Mackenzie or Carl Hildebrandt ASAP.


The students who are going also have to do a humanitarian project to benefit even more Dominicans.

We would love to have the following items donated: (Items can be used)

Any suitcase that you no longer need

Orange East Supervisory Union
Search for Interim Superintendent of Schools
Update: April 14, 2017

The Orange East Supervisory Union Board met on April 5, 2017 to decide on the next steps in the search for a new superintendent.  The board decided to continue to work with Harry Frank, Search Consultant from the Vermont School Boards Association, and have him reach out to potential candidates.  Once a finalist(s) has been identified, he/she will be invited to visit the schools and meet with staff and community members before being interviewed by the board.

The date and time for finalist visits will be published once they are in place.  Community members are encouraged to join us for the public forum which will take place during the visit.
