HUUSD Board News
Our district continues to be in great need of more substitute staff. The pay is $140/day and substitutes can choose which days and in which schools they will work. If there is any chance you might be able to offer your time for this, please contact Laura Titus at firstname.lastname@example.org.
The HUUSD School Board met remotely via Zoom on November 18. The meeting began with detailed reports from the Superintendent as well as the Board’s student representatives. Community members might be especially interested to watch the meeting’s first 30 minutes to hear more about the district’s response and plans related to Vermont’s most recent COVID developments. A link to the meeting is available here: https://tinyurl.com/huwebapp-youtube-live
The Board discussed a number of district policies, including those with regard to class size, wellness, prevention of sexual harassment and electronic communications.
The Board discussed the Superintendent’s proposal to convert 5 paid work days to 5 paid vacation days for all HUUSD employees as a one time bonus due to the COVID pandemic in recognition and thanks to its employees’ significant additional work and efforts. The Board recognizes that many members of our community who deserve additional compensation during this time are not receiving such recognition and we are fortunate to have the opportunity to support our employees in this way. A formal vote on the proposal will occur on 12/9.
The Board will meet next on December 9th at 6PM, also via Zoom. The meeting will include a first look at projected expenditures for the next fiscal year and preliminary estimates from the state tax commissioner. All are invited to join the meeting through this link (https://us02web.zoom.us/j/386460007), or to watch it on our Youtube channel, HU Webapp.
