Any thoughts on the new HUSD website, launched Monday? It looks cleaner, but is still under construction and there’s no quick link to the board materials yet. But the main stories on the site — which were also special features at Wednesday’s meeting — are better presented than on the old site.
Last night’s board meeting: The update on the superintendent’s plan was a little disappointing because there weren’t any data available. Won’t be until the end of the year update in the summer. Click here for the presentation.
Some promising news: Trustee Luis Reynoso said that all-day facilitated discussion on board governance proved helpful, and said his new neighbor on the dais is evidence of that.
“Mr. Armas is sitting right next to me now, and that’s a step in the right direction,” he said. ”Miracles do happen.”
Impressive presentation on the status of the Regional Occupational Center program. John Taylor, an instructor in the criminal justice department, was there with two of his students. They’ve been winning a lot of forensics competitions, and came in third nationally. Taylor said they only lost because they do forensics different in California than in other states. Spoke with Taylor after the presentation, plan on doing a story down the line.
Left after that, don’t know how the rest of the night went. But per Reynoso’s comment, what I saw was amicable enough.
