HUUSD School Board Meeting Recap - 10/23/19

Dear members of our six town community,

At our last meeting on October 23, 2019, the Harwood Unified Union School District (HUUSD), the Board had an extended Q&A and Public Comment session to address the public’s questions on the Board’s PreK - 12 planning. Information on the PreK-12 planning work and process can be found here: https://huusd.org/prek-12-bond-plan

Michelle Baker, HUUSD Director of Finance, presented additional information and clarification on the calculations in the models and board members asked questions. Here is the information she provided: https://drive.google.com/file/d/0B2uQwDkbPKEVSjdyS2pNOTRzZTM0T3FtMUVwOVJJOF9fRG9v/view

The Board took action on the eight (8) items below (listed in order of the time in the meeting when the vote occurred):

  1. Adopted: The board resolves and declares the data package prepared and presented by the administration team regarding the PreK-12 redesign project was prepared at the direction at the board, is accurate and has been prepared without intentional bias. 

  2. Failed: Model a scenario to include TBPS PreK-2; CBMS 3-6; all 7-12 at HUHS; 4 valley schools PreK-6. 

  3. Adopted: Approve the early retirement proposal made in the 10/23/19 board packet.

  4. Adopted: Approve an additional board meeting on November 5.

  5. Adopted: Proceed with discussion about IDC at the date the Board leadership deems appropriate. 

  6. Adopted: Add an agenda item to the November 5th meeting to share reflections on the effects of school closure on students, as well as on the broader social and economic fabric of district towns including possible loss or gain of students and families.

  7. Approved the following items as part of the consent agenda: Approved: Minutes of 10/16/19; Accepted: Vouchers 1090 and 1091, equaling $54,091.16

  8. Adopted: Enter into two executive sessions to discuss pending or probable civil litigation, to which the public body is or may be a party because doing so in public session will clearly place that public body at a substantial disadvantage. 

Our next meeting is Tuesday, November 5 at 6:00 pm in the Harwood Union School library. Please visit https://huusd.org/huusd-board to confirm time and place of meetings.
