Dear HUUSD school communities,
Instead of our usual “board meeting recap” for this week, we want to let you know of the many ways to stay informed and engaged as the board moves forward with district plan and bond work, as well as development of a new vision statement for the district.
1 - Keep track of where we are in our process on the “District Plan/Bond Project” page of the HUUSD website.
2 - Read the report prepared by HUUSD Director of Finance, Michelle Baker, on Projected Cost Per Equalized Pupil and Homestead Tax Rates, found online here. Hard copies of this report are available at all HUUSD Town Offices.
3 - Watch the May 15 or May 22 meeting videos which include the level service projections presentation by the Director of Finance (noted in #2 above), available through Mad River Television./)
4 - Attend our May 22 meeting at 6:00 in the Harwood Library. The first 90 minutes will be a public forum for community members to hear about the district’s level service projections (noted in #2 above) and share their impressions and questions in small group discussions with board members.
5 - Email the full board with thoughts and questions at [email protected]
6 - Subscribe to receive email updates directly by clicking on the News Subscriptions link found at wwsu.org or by clicking here.
7 - Please also join one of our Visioning Community Conversations. This week, we’ll hold two conversations on Tuesday, May 21: 9:00 - 10:30 am at the Waitsfield Town Office and from 6:00 - 7:30 pm at Warren Elementary School. Community members are invited to come to any conversation that can fit in their schedule, regardless of their town of residence. RSVPs requested, but not required.
8 - Moving forward there will be additional opportunities for engagement and input as we work to develop a PreK through 12 district plan that will get us to a bond vote for Town Meeting Day 2020. Please refer to the timeline on PreK-12/Bond webpage, meeting agendas and board packets for information on upcoming work. As always these will be posted within 48 hours of our meetings, which are generally held on the 2nd and 4th Wednesdays of the month. Please refer to the HUUSD events calendar found on the main page of the district website to confirm meetings or determine when others might be held.
Thank you for your continued engagement and support.
The HUUSD board of directors
