  • ~ FREE & REDUCED MEALS APPLICATION ~

    Children need healthy meals to learn. Washington Central Unified Union School District offers healthy meals every school day. In School Year 2021-2022, all children will receive free breakfast, lunch, and after school snack (if your school offers this program) regardless of your household income eligibility. It is still very important for families to submit the Application for Free and Reduced Price School Meals to track our community’s Free and Reduced Percentage. Filling out and returning the application may help your family, the school, and community at large, qualify for other financial assistance. P-EBT benefits to your household, grant funds for the school, and telecom reimbursements for the community are just a few examples of the benefits of having higher Free and Reduced percentages.
     
    You can apply online through Campus Parent  CLICK HERE. When you log into the new Campus Parent go down to more and select meal benefits to start the online application. You may also print and fill out the attached application and return it to your school.  The instructions can be found below and applications will be sent home at the beginning of the school year as well.

    PREKINDERGARTEN SCREENING/REGISTRATION

    REGISTRATION is now open. .

    Important Information for Prekindergarten Registration

    Prekindergarten online enrollment for the 2021-2022 school year will open on March 8, 2021.  We will begin offering placement to students shortly after March 12th.  Here are a few important details for you about enrollment:

    1. If your student is currently attending the Prekindergarten program at Berlin, Calais, Doty, East Montpelier, or Rumney, you do not need to complete online enrollment. Your student will automatically be enrolled in next year’s class.  This is new starting for the 2021-2022 school year.
    2. If your student is currently attending the Prekindergarten program at Berlin, Calais, Doty, East Montpelier, or Rumney and intends to enroll in an ACT 166 private Prekindergarten program, you only need to complete the Act 166: Universal Prekindergarten Program Tuition Request form and return it to the school or email it to wcsuregistrar@u32.org.
    3. If your student is only attending a Community Connections Prekindergarten program at one of the schools, you will need to complete the online registration.
    4. If your student is currently attending an Act 166 private Prekindergarten program and plan to continue attending a private program for next year, you only need to complete the Act 166: Universal Prekindergarten Program Tuition Request form and return it to the school or email it to wcsuregistrar@u32.org
    5. If you have a student already enrolled in our schools and need to enroll a sibling in Pre-K, you can do this through the Infinite Campus Parent Portal under “More” and “Online Registration”.
    6. Please note that due to child care regulations, each prekindergarten student must have at least 2 emergency contacts that are not parent/guardians that can pick up the student from school. For returning prekindergarten students, you can update this information in the Infinite Campus Parent Portal under “More” and “Demographics”.  You can add emergency contacts or update your information.

    If you need help accessing the parent portal, please contact Michelle Ksepka at mksepka@u32.org

  • Updated Tax Calculations for Budget FY 21-22

    We are writing to apprise the Washington Central Unified Union School District (WCUUSD) community of some new education tax rate estimates for the WCUUSD Budget 21-22.  This new information was received after the printing of the Annual Budget Report. 

    Using the latest education tax information provided by the House Ways and Means Committee, all 5 towns in Washington Central are projected to have a tax decrease for the upcoming budget year.  The new tax information uses the budget presented to the voters along with, updated equalized pupil information received from the Agency of Education.

    In summary, the equalized education tax rate is projected to decrease by 7.1 cents. At the local level the amount varies using the Common Level of Appraisal.  Here is the new information by town showing the decrease in taxes:

    Berlin -15.5 cents, Calais -4.3 cents, East Montpelier -8.3 cents Middlesex -1.7 cents and Worcester -5.7 cents.

    Please refer to the chart in the Memo for more informaiton: Updated Tax Calculations for Budget FY 21-22 Memo
