Dear members of our six town community,
At our last meeting on March 27, 2019, the Harwood Unified Union School District (HUUSD) Board took action on the six (6) items below (listed in order of the time in the meeting when the vote occurred):
Approved consent agenda including: approving minutes of 3/13/19, annual meeting (3/4/19) minutes and an out of state field trip; and accepting vouchers #1193, 1194, 1204, and 1213 equaling $636,610.96
Adopted these 2 motions related to the work plan and prek-12 plan after discussion and amendment:
Task the Asset Management group to review the “Getting to yes” and “Questions” worksheets, compile the data, and report back to the board;
Task board leadership, the superintendent, and board committee chairs to develop a draft timeline for the board to review; (related to the bond and the preK-12 plan) as early as April 10th but no later than April 24th.
Appointed Tim Jones and Maureen McCracken to the Fayston School Principal Search Committee.
Recapped, discussed, and heard public comment on the Superintendent’s report and approved incorporating such report into these minutes.The report can be found here: https://drive.google.com/file/d/1157YDyP44frIp0x07Gajy781Q-Jtlsx-/view
Entered into executive session for purpose of discussing a grievance, because premature general public knowledge would clearly place the public body or a person involved at a substantial disadvantage. Upon returning to open meeting, no further action was taken.
Entered into executive session for the purpose of discussing an employee's contract, because doing so in public session would clearly place that employee at a substantial disadvantage. Returning to open meeting, the Board upheld the Superintendent’s recommendation for disciplinary action regarding an employee. The Board denied a leave of absence request from an employee.
Our next meeting is Wednesday, April 10 at 7:00 pm and will be held in the Harwood Union High School library. Starting at 6:00 pm, the Asset Management and Policy committees will meet, also in the library. Committees generally alternate meeting times and meet every other board meeting. For more information on the SMART goals that drive these committees, check the HUUSD board web page.
