UCS Rocket Day Send Off

 Each year fourth graders at Underhill Central School celebrate their time at UCS by launching rockets into the sky. Together, with a friend of their choice, they chase to catch the rockets after their parachutes release. It's a wonderful celebration of friendship and learning. This year, staff that are retiring or moving on to new adventures also launched rockets. Thank you to the staff at UCS for their dedication to their students and learning community.

North End Capacity Study Meeting

In the fall of 2017, the MMMUSD School Board requested a capacity study of our north end elementary schools in order to better understand potential opportunities and efficiencies in building use.  The study's primary goals were to examine building use, enrollment, and staffing as well as educational and community opportunities. Any changes to the use and configuration of the facilities will be determined by the MMMUSD School Board.  You can review this study and find other helpful information (frequently asked questions, process, etc.) at this link on our webpage:  NORTH END CAPACITY REPORT.  There is an informational meeting on June 11, 2018 from 6:00-7:30 p.m. at UID (childcare provided).

John Alberghini Named 2018 Vermont Superintendent of the Year

The Vermont Superintendents Association (VSA) has recognized Superintendent John Alberghini of the Chittenden East Supervisory Union and the Mount Mansfield Modified Union School District as the 2018 Frederick H. Tuttle Superintendent of the Year.  Alberghini was honored by his colleagues at the Association’s recent annual conference.

The recognition commemorates long-time Vermont superintendent and children’s advocate Frederick H. Tuttle and recognizes a Vermont superintendent who has demonstrated exemplary leadership in service to students, communities and public education.

In presenting the award, Superintendent Elaine Pinckney of the neighboring Champlain Valley School District said this, “John Alberghini serves in the model of Frederick H. Tuttle.  He has an enduring commitment to the students and families he serves. He cares most about people - but knows finance and is highly skilled at managing complex systems. He leads quietly, calmly and is a voice for what students deserve.”

John Alberghini has been the superintendent for the Chittenden East Supervisory Union since 2010.  He served as co-superintendent of the Supervisory Union from 2008 to 2010. During his tenure, he has earned the respect of his colleagues because of his significant contributions on behalf of students, the school system and the community.

Superintendent Alberghini is regarded as a quiet scholar, effective administrator and exemplary leader.  He has supported Chittenden East teachers and administrators in implementing proficiency-based education, personalized learning, and flexible pathways.  Significantly, in this era of increasing obligations for schools and a focus on efficiency, John Alberghini has emphasized a systems focus in order to better serve students as cost-effectively as possible.  He is regarded as a leader who promotes the most purposeful investments on behalf of the education system he leads and taxpayers in the communities of the Chittenden East Supervisory Union.

Under Alberghini’s leadership, and that of the school board members with whom he works, the Chittenden East Supervisory Union and the towns of the Mount Mansfield Modified Union School District (MMMUSD) were forerunners in Vermont’s effort to strategically unify school districts.  Undaunted by the political and logistical challenges of merger, John provided focused leadership in the process that resulted in the MMMUSD formation. The unification of districts that are now members of MMMUSD has created more system-wide efficiency as well as increased educational opportunities including interdistrict school choice and a growing foreign language immersion program.  Superintendent Alberghini’s leadership focus emphasizes equitable opportunity for all students and efficiency.

In acknowledging Superintendent Alberghini’s recognition, MMMUSD Board Chair Andrew Pond said this, “John Alberghini has provided exceptional leadership for the communities of Bolton, Huntington, Jericho, Richmond, Underhill and beyond.  He is very attentive to the day to day operational issues associated with running an efficient school system while keeping the best interests of students at the forefront. John conducts himself with honesty and integrity and has been an outstanding steward as our districts and schools respond to dynamic change for public education and our schools and communities.  We are proud to have him working with us, on behalf students and taxpayers.”
