About OSSU
Schools in the Orleans Southwest Supervisory Union exist so that all students are empowered with the knowledge and skills needed to achieve their full potential and become successful, responsible and contributing members of society- both locally and globally.

The geographic location of the Orleans Southwest Supervisory Union (OSSU) is often referred to as the Gateway to the Northeast Kingdom. We are located 20 miles from St. Johnsbury, 30 miles from Montpelier (Vermont’s capital) and 60 miles from Burlington (Vermont’s largest city).

OSSU serves approximately 1100 students PK-12 across six towns in four counties: Craftsbury and Greensboro in Orleans County, Hardwick and Stannard in Caledonia County, Wolcott in Lamoille County and Woodbury in Washington County. The total population within our 6 towns is approximately 6,900 residents.

We are proud of our students and staff who recognize the value of small schools and the interdependence that is fostered when school boards and communities work together to offer the best education possible for our students while monitoring the performance of our schools on a regular basis.

The OSSU central office is the administrative center of the supervisory union where services are coordinated in the areas of Educational Leadership, Curriculum and Student Assessment, Business & Finance, Technology, Human Resources and Student Support Services.
