Orleans Southwest Supervisory Union (OSSU) serves school age children in the towns of Craftsbury, Greensboro, Hardwick, Stannard, Wolcott and Woodbury. Our schools are a source of pride in our communities. We believe in creating strong student, family, staff, and community partnerships with the goal of providing an education that is relevant and meaningful to each child in our districts. Understanding that our students will be competing on a global level, we aim to offer programs and practices that respect diversity, embrace excellence, promote equity, and encourage lifelong learning. We take our responsibility seriously and appreciate the opportunity to work together to be stronger together in our school communities.
Empowering students with the knowledge, skills and dispositions to be college and career ready and become successful, responsible and contributing members of both local and global society.
Six schools serve approximately 1,190 PK-12 students across six towns, and four counties with a total of six school boards.
OSSU's Framework for Continuous Growth outlines the goals of the Supervisory Union and its member districts over five years and incorporates many aspects of Act 77 (personalized learning plans, proficiency based learning, flexible pathways, place based learning) and Act 46 (expanding learning opportunities for all students, meeting education quality standards and governance).
