Orange Southwest Supervisory Union Budget Overview
The Orange Southwest Supervisory Union (OSSU) is a small, rural Vermont school system comprised of three elementary school districts (Brookfield, Braintree, and Randolph), one high school district (Randolph Union High School), and a regional technical education Center (Randolph Technical Career Center) which serves students from 7 sending high schools.
Over the past decade, the OSSU has made significant structural changes to its operations in the areas of special education, finance, maintenance, food services, technology, and transportation. These changes placed the OSSU in strong financial condition and saved our tax payers millions of dollars. In real (2012) dollars, the OSSU has not increased its expenditures over the past decade – a feat very few, if any, school districts in Vermont can match.
Collectively, the 2014-2015 school budgets represent a 0.68% increase from 2013-2014 budgets, while the district's audited expenditures between 2006 and 2013 have decreased. To view the entire 2014-2015 budget and financial plan, click here.
