  1. We went into executive session to discuss Superintendent evaluation.
  2. We asked the HUUSD personnel committee to meet with the Superintendent to discuss feedback and develop goals for the coming year.
  3. We approved a co-operative agreement for girls hockey.
  4. We approved the hiring of a new curriculum director.
  5. We approved board minutes from 5/23/2018 and 6/6/2018.
  6. We accepted multiple board warrants.
  7. We approved 2018-2019 tax anticipation note.
  8. We approved 2018-2019 bids: heating oil, heating propane, and paper.
  9. We approved Chromebook purchases for 2018-2019.
  10. We reviewed school choice procedures.

A reminder to everyone: remember our June 21 middle school workshop, which will include staff and administrators who work with middle school students, board members, parents from the community, and non-parents from the community.

We will continue to send updates and previews of each HUUSD Board meeting in the future. Thank you for your continued support and engagement.

Our last HUUSD board meeting before the summer is Wednesday, June 27 from 6:00 - 9:00 pm, and will be held in the Harwood Union High School library.
