Dear HUUSD community,
First, we would like to remind you that our LAST vision conversations will be happening this week as follows:
We encourage any member of our HUUSD community (parent, resident, staff, students, etc!) to attend these events, regardless of where you live. Please come and bring a friend!
Second, the following summarizes our last meeting on May 22, 2019, which also served as a community forum as part of the PreK-12 planning project. Please visit the District Plan/Bond Project page of our website to review the forum materials and add your own comments via Google Form. (LINK: wwsu.org/district-plan-bond-project)
The first part of the meeting was dedicated to a public forum where Michelle Baker, Director of Finance and Operations, presented a detailed look at our current operational budget and budget/tax projections for the next 10 years and answered questions from the public. We also broke into smaller groups to hear from the public about their impressions of the budget presentation as well as their concerns and hopes about the upcoming PreK-12 planning.
At the HUUSD Board meeting, the Harwood Unified Union School District (HUUSD) Board acted on the items below (in order):
Consent agenda: Approved meeting minutes of 5/15/19, accepted Voucher 1258 equaling $435,013.96, Approved Harwood out of state field trips (HU music field trip to NYC, Senior trip to Great Escape, English Dept trip to Salem, MA)
We also heard a report from the Student reps on the board, presented by Hannah Clark, and were introduced to the policy packet which included numerous policies that the board is expected to the approve by the end of June. We also spent time brainstorming various possible change models for our district configuration and so far have a list of over 20 possible scenarios which will be narrowed down to a much smaller number over the course of the next few meetings.
Our next meeting is Wednesday, June 5 at 6:00 pm in the Harwood Union High School library.
