Dear members of our six town community,
At our last meeting on December 4, 2019, of the Harwood Unified Union School District (HUUSD) Board:
Michelle Baker, Director of Finance & Operations, gave a presentation and answered board member questions on the FY21 Budget. Her report, and all FY21 budget documents, can be found at https://huusd.org/business-office under “FY21 Budget Development.”
The Administration gave a presentation and answered board member questions on the status of intra-district choice (IDC) for incoming 7th/8th graders for SY2020-21.
The following motion was made and tabled and will be discussed at the next meeting on 12/11: That all 7th and 8th graders attend Crossett Brook Middle School effective for the school year 20/21.
The Board took action on the four (4) items below:
Approved the following items as part of the consent agenda: Approve: Minutes of 11/20/19 (amending the first bullet under public comment to add “teachers” after “statement from some CBMS”); Accept: Voucher 1125 for $110,519.53; Approve: Bid from LGR1 Inc. for Crossett Brook MS Roof in the amount of $575,000 from the Maintenance Reserve Fund(s)
Adopted: Add discussion of protocols regarding media/public events and/or written communications of both individual Board member and the full Board to a Board meeting agenda prior to Town Meeting Day 2020.
