BUUSD Board Corner – December 2020

It’s budget season!  The BUU Board will be reviewing the first budget draft for Fiscal Year 2022 at our next meeting on December 21st at 6:00pm.  We encourage your input!  All board meetings are open to the public.  If you are interested in attending any upcoming BUUSD meetings, please go to the calendar on the RNESU website and click on the link for dial-in information.  

Petitions are currently available for three BUU member seats, which will be on the ballot this upcoming March 2021**.  There are two (2) seats for a Chittenden resident and one (1) At-Large seat to be held by a resident of either Chittenden or Mendon. Board terms are three years, however, please note that one of the Chittenden seats in this election will be for only one year due to a previous resignation. 

The BUU Board governs with a Policy Governance approach, which allows us to focus on the future of the school.  A board member should enjoy working with values, visions, and long-term planning. They should think in terms of systems, be committed to the organization’s areas of concern, and be able to share authority in a group process. If you are interested in running, please contact a current board member or your town office.

We will be holding a Candidate Orientation for all those interested in running on January 11th, 2021 at 5:00pm prior to our regularly scheduled meeting at 6:00pm. We will be available to answer any questions you may have regarding the candidate process or the position itself.

**Please note that due to COVID-19 and the safety of our citizens, the Legislature passed a bill (Act 162) that temporarily removes the requirement that a person needs to collect voter signatures to have their name placed on the ballot as a candidate.
