District Decision and Appeals Process
Dear Parents, Students, Staff, and Community,
The District Administration has developed a District Decision and Appeals Process that we believe will help all of us strengthen our communication, and help students, staff, parents, and community navigate the District's system more easily.  The process was initially developed by your District Leadership Team, and then reviewed and endorsed by the Board of Education.  The District Leadership Team will continue to update the Process periodically.   A few, brief notes about the Process are in order.
  • Attached, you will find the Purposes and Guide for the Process.
  • Next, you will find the District Decision and Appeals Process.  The far left column, Areas, lists the items about which you may need to make a contact.  The remaining columns (Initial Contact, First Level Appeal, etc.) are the people you should contact - in order from left to right - to help you.  Please follow the order given.
  • The last page is the list of Descriptors/Definitions which define the terms used in the Areas (far left) column of the Process.  That should help, too.
Please let us know your thoughts and suggestions about how to improve the Process.  You should communicate with your Principal, Dan Dobner, or you may contact me directly...
Thank you for the support of our students and staff. 
Attila J. Weninger, Ph.D., Superintendent

Boys Tennis - Three-set Thrillers
Hartford Union led by one point with two matches left.  Both went into a third set.  The Orioles needed just a point, and Kevin Kreuser came away with a victory at No. 4 singles for Hartford.  It secured a 4-3 victory against rival Slinger on Thursday "We'll always take a win," Hartford coach Andy Andress said. "There were no easy matches and we knew there wouldn't be."  Slinger coach Steve Anderson added, "I always say if we have to take a loss,  a 3-4 is not as damaging."  Kreuser's victory came less than a minute before Slinger won at No. 3 doubles to bring the Owls to within the differential.  Both Kreuser's third set and the third set at No. 3 doubles began at the same time and concluded at almost the same time.  Kreuser won his third set, 6-0, and the Owls won the third set 6-0.  "I don't think I've ever seen that," Andress said. "Those three-setters were odd."   Kreuser's victory was 6-2, 4-6, 6-0 against Jamie Melius.  "Basically, I was trying to keep (shots) in and be consistent," Kreuser said of the third. "Sometimes  I'd make a mistake and hit the ball to hard."  He fought through fatigue late.  "A little in the middle," Kreuser said of whether he felt fatigue. "But I kept going."  Anderson added, "Kevin is consistent. The first time Jamie played him, (Kevin) didn't get to a third set."  The other third-set win for Hartford came at No. 3 singles. Michael Fulop beat Evan Sievers, 6-3, 3-6, 6-2. Click here to read the full article.

Girls Soccer News
Girls Soccer Wins New Berlin West Tournament
The Orioles finished the week 5-0 and as champions of Saturday's Mike Dillett Memorial Tournament hosted by New Berlin West. They beat Waukesha North, 4-0, in the title game Hartford Union (9-5-1) scored twice in the first half and twice in the second, with four different Orioles tallying goals. Megan Zickert opened the scoring in the first half off an assist from Maddie Hoxworth, then Hoxworth scored off an assist from Mandy Loga.   Hartford's Sheyenne Detaege tallied in the second half, then Mallory Knight ended the scoring with an assist from Zickert.  The defense in front of Maddy Sieczkowski didn't allow Waukesha North a shot on goal. The Orioles are 7-1, with 40 goals for and two against, in their last eight games. Zickert has 15 goals in that span, while Knight has seven.  "We are moving the ball so well. We are anticipating each other movements. We have speed, but we know how to use the speed as well," coach Kevin Martin said. "Our starting back line is made up of three sophomores and a freshman and they are also playing really well. Our goal scorers are scoring goals and our defenders are shutting teams down."  Abby Bailey, Knight and Zickert each scored twice and combined for 10 points (six goals, four assists) as the Orioles opened the tournament with a 6-0 win against Mukwonago. Hartford scored three goals apiece in each half.  

GIRLS SOCCER Hartford Union 6, Watertown 0
Hartford Union keeps surging. The Orioles claimed a seventh shutout in their last eight games with a 6-0 road win on Tuesday. Hartford (10-5-1, 4-1 Wisconsin Little Ten) has outscored its opposition 46-2 in its past nine games. 'Yes, our offense is clicking, but a lot of our offense starts with our defensive line winning balls and getting ahead," coach Kevin Martin said. "We have so many strong, soccer-smart players coming into the attack from all over the field. This team is so much fun to watch right now."  Mallory Knight's hat trick provided half the power Tuesday; she scored in the 28th, 53rd and 60th minutes. Knight also collected two assists.  Megan Zickert added a goal and three assists - her goal led off the scoring in the 16th minute, and her assists were all in the second half.  Maddie Hoxworth scored twice and Abby Bailey added an assist.  Maddy Sieczkowski and Jorian Dietlmeier split the shutout in goal, each taking a half.  "We continue to create so well as a team," Martin added. "The control and poise we are showing in the attacking third is turning into many goal-scoring opportunities.  "Bailey is just dominating in the central midfield, while Zickert is a double threat. Knight had a player of the game performance tonight ... With Hoxworth adding two goals, our top four point scorers were all heavily involved in the conference  victory."
