The HUUSD School Board met in-person (with an option for remote participation) last Wednesday, February 16th at Harwood Union Middle/High School.
The majority of the meeting was dedicated to the Superintendent’s updates on the district’s planned approach to COVID. A summary of the full plan is available here (https://huusd.org/blog/response-plan-to-covid-19-post-winter-break).
In action items, the Board unanimously approved the adoption of new district “D Policies” and also approved a flag-display policy for the district. The board also warned the adoption of a new policy F11, the vote on which will occur at the March 23th board meeting. To review all of these district policies, please review the 2022-02-16 board packet here (https://huusd.org/huusd-board)
Please vote on the HUUSD budget, either in person or by requesting a remote ballot from your town clerk. (As a reminder, although the Moretown municipal ballots will be mailed automatically, Moretown residents must still specifically request an HUUSD ballot from the town clerk.) For information on the budget see https://huusd.org/budgets.
Another important vote on town meeting day regards the creation of a separate Central Vermont Career Center School District. Please See http://cvtcc.org for more information on this ballot item.
As a reminder there is a survey on the expenditure of ESSER funds available at the district’s website: (https://huusd.org/esser-funds)
The Board welcomes feedback from our community. One of the easiest ways to share your thoughts is to send an email to [email protected], which will go to every Board member. There is also time at every Board meeting for public comment. Alternately, reach out to one of your neighbors who is on the school board and share your thoughts in a personal email or phone call (see a list of Board members and contact information at https://tinyurl.com/523wtrnj).
The Board’s next meeting will be the annual meeting on Monday, February 28th at 6PM. Community members may attend in person in the Harwood library or remotely via zoom (https://us02web.zoom.us/j/386460007#success), or watch it broadcast live on Youtube (http://tinyurl.com/huwebapp-youtube-live).
