The Grand Isle Supervisory Union is comprised of five schools and an administrative team that implements and oversees the educational system in Grand Isle County, Vermont. Towns within this school union include Alburgh, Grand Isle, Isle La Motte, North Hero, and South Hero (Folsom). The GISU Schools provide for students in grades K-6/K-8, while students in grades 9-12 have the choice of attending High Schools in neighboring counties.

ACT 46 Unification Update:
Residents of Grand Isle, North Hero, and Isle La Motte have approved a merger to create a new union school district known as the Champlain Islands Unified Union School District. The new district, serving grades PK-6 and offering school choice for grades 7-12, will begin operation on July 1, 2019.
Results in Grand Isle were 575-301 in favor, 394-170 in North Hero, and 243-60 in Isle La Motte. South Hero voters declined to join the union by a 737-380 margin. Alburgh did not vote on Tuesday, but has until November 30, 2017 to vote on joining the union district.
The following people will serve on the new Union School District Board:
Andrew Julow (North Hero), Gary Marckres (Grand Isle), Nathan Robinson (Grand Isle), Mike Talbot (Grand Isle) and Jane Zera (Isle La Motte). This Board will begin work on policies, procedures and the FY’20 budget, with an implementation date of July 1, 2019. School choice will begin for grades 7-8 in Fall 2019. The current school boards in each town will continue governance for FY’17 and FY’18.
The Act 46 Study Committee is deeply grateful for the thoughtful engagement of our communities throughout this process, culminating in great voter turnout on Tuesday.
