WE HEARD A RUMOR...
HISD HAS (FINALLY) INFORMED SOME ADMINISTRATORS THAT SCHOOLS WILL BE ALLOWED TO HAVE "HYBRID" CLASSROOM PLANS, WHEREAS THE KIDS CAN HOPEFULLY KEEP THEIR TEACHER REGARDLESS OF PARENT'S CHOICE (F2F OR REMOTE)... ALLOWING FOR TEACHERS TO KEEP TEACHING THEIR CURRENT STUDENTS, (BOTH IN-CLASS/F2F AND REMOTE/ONLINE)...

***FINAL CONFIRMATION / CVHS SPECIFIC DECISIONS ARE (OBVIOUSLY) PENDING OFFICIAL WORD FROM CARNEGIE ADMINISTRATION***
FROM YOUR BOARD
- SEPTEMBER 27, 2020

In this virtual new reality, communications are more important than ever.

ADDRESSING THE BOARD AT BOARD MEETINGS
The Board of Education welcomes members of the community to speak on subjects related to the school district. Community members can address the board in one of two ways:

Speakers to Agenda Items - During any board meeting, people may speak about items on the agenda for that meeting.
Hearing of the Community - During the regular monthly board meeting, people may speak about a district-related subject not covered by an item on the meeting agenda.

To comply with state and local requirements during the COVID-19 Public Health Emergency, and to protect the health of our community, the Hattie Mae White Administration Building is closed and board meetings are being conducted on line.

The procedures have changed...
