Dear HUUSD community,

**Please note that the next Community Conversations regarding our 3-Word Survey Results will occur Tuesday, May 21, 9:00 - 10:30 am at the Waitsfield Town Office and Tuesday, May 21, 6:00 - 7:30 pm at Warren Elementary School**

At the May 8, meeting, the Harwood Unified Union School District (HUUSD) Board acted on the items below:

  1. Approved consent agenda including: past meeting minutes, board warrants, out of state field trip requests, and bids for capital improvement projects scheduled for several buildings this summer.

  2. Accepted unanimous recommendation from Fayston Elementary Principal Search Committee to appoint Celia Hooker.

  3. Appointed community member, Linda Hazard, to the Visioning Committee.

  4. Approved the updated Board Communications Process and Structure Document.

The board reviewed the following draft criteria for costing out scenarios in a PreK through 12 district plan: Operational savings, Construction/Renovation Costs, Staffing, Transportation, Administration Perspective, Community Perspective, Tax Rate, Enrollment Per Building, and Debt Service.

The next meeting is Wednesday, May 15, at 6:00 pm in the Harwood Union School library. HUUSD Director of Finance, Michelle Baker, will present a report on cost per equalized pupil and homestead tax rate projections through FY 2029. These projections assume no changes are made to district configuration and will serve as a comparison for other scenarios.

On Wednesday, May 22, at 6:00 there will be a 90 minute forum regarding development of a PreK through 12 plan, including a bond proposal for Town Meeting 2020, followed by a regular board meeting.
