HUUSD Board Kicks off School Year

Dear HUUSD Community, 

As we prepare for the start of the 2019-20 school year, I want to offer an update from the HUUSD board and share with you what we expect in the coming months. 

The HUUSD board is in the midst of developing a long-term PreK - 12 plan for our district to address our schools’ current and future needs. In establishing this plan, we are fulfilling our promise from the Act 46 merger to provide expanded and equitable educational opportunities while operating more efficiently. We expect to finalize the plan in mid-November and then finalize a bond proposal for the community’s consideration at Town Meeting in March of 2020.

I invite you to follow our progress and offer your input along the way. Here are a few ways to learn more about our current work:

  1. Visit https://huusd.org/prek-12-bond-plan. This page of our website is a great place to get oriented and see the data the board has been working with. It includes the history of our work on this over the last 6 months, links to relevant documents and data, as well as a detailed FAQ.  

  2. We expect to finalize our plan for this fall’s community engagement and feedback about the PreK-12 planning by early September. We’ll be sharing that information on FPF, through the schools and in the papers, and hope that you’ll help us to spread the word. Stay tuned!

  3. At our September 25th meeting, the administrative team will present the models we asked for last spring. So, if you’re wondering what happened to all that talk of models and scenarios, know that it’s coming!

We are tremendously excited about the opportunities that a comprehensive PreK - 12 plan could offer us, as well as keenly aware that times of change are challenging. Our HUUSD board remains committed to the challenging but vital task of providing the best possible PreK-12 education for all of our students with the most prudent use of our public tax dollars.

I want to thank our incredible school leaders, faculty and staff as they prepare to welcome our students on August 26th for the first day of school and another great year of learning and growth. Thank you to all of our community members for your ongoing support of our incredible schools.  

With appreciation,

Caitlin Hollister, Chair
Harwood Unified Union School Board
