Strategic Plan

Hartford Union High School District (HUHS) finished the development of the Strategic Plan this past January and will now focus on implementing the plan to achieve the determined goals.  

Just as we called upon several diverse groups to help develop the Strategic Plan we are asking diverse groups to serve on goal committees to help implement and achieve the goals of the plan.  We are inviting members representing the following:
a. Students
b. Parents
c. General community members
d. Members of the Hartford area business community

The Strategic Plan Committee worked tirelessly on developing the Strategic Plan's goals and key measurements of successes.  A brief summary of each goal is below. Please consider signing up for one of the four goals listed.
Goal 1 - Student Achievement - Students will meet career, college and life readiness success indicators by graduation

Goal 2 - Branding - HUHS will be viewed as the community's "high school of choice"

Goal 3 - Stakeholder Engagement - HUHS will increase each stakeholder group's engagement and satisfaction

Goal 4 - Master Facility Plan - Develop a master facility plan for the school buildings and grounds that encompasses renovations/upgrades; effective use of existing spaces; and recommendations for curriculum, instructional practices, and co-curricular areas.

Please send an EMAIL and let us know which goal you are interested in and why.  Unfortunately, we cannot take an unlimited number of people so there will be a selection process and you will be notified either way.

Thank you for your understanding.

New This Year - Grading Changes
Last Monday, the HUHS School Board approved changes to our grading policy for the upcoming school year.  While it will change how teachers post grades, it will also change what students and parents see in Skyward (Student & Family Access).  

As a parent/guardian, you will no longer see 20 grading columns in Skyward.  Instead, there will only be columns for term and mid-term Citizenship grades as well as the Semester 1 & 2 and Semester Exam 1 & 2 academic grades.  The Semester grade columns will be up to date running totals for the entire semester of your student's academic progress. At any point in the semester, you will be able to see what grade your student is currently earning by looking under the Semester 1 or 2 grade column.  As semester grades are the only ones that show up on a student's transcripts, we wanted to avoid the common confusion that students/parents have each year by having multiple mid-term, term, and semester grading columns displayed in Skyward.

You are also able to click on the "Display Options" link at the top of the Gradebook and select which grading columns you would like to see for either semester.  This will allow you to limit the columns that are displayed in the Skyward Gradebook.

Parents/Guardians will still receive email notices at each mid-term and term grading periods and be able to see their student's Progress Report Letter at these intervals (roughly every 4 ½ weeks).  These Progress Reports will be placed in the student's Skyward Student Portfolio and will contain each student's courses and grades earned.

As we will only post academic grades at the end of each semester, Honor Roll will now only be calculated, posted and communicated at these times.  As done in the past, Report Cards will be created and placed in the Student Portfolio at the end of each semester.
Parents/Guardians will also continue to get an additional Progress Report notification if their student earns an academic grade of a D or F or a Citizenship grade of a BA (Basic) or UN (Unsatisfactory) at each grading period (Mid Term and Term), as this will cause the student to lose the open Resource privilege by being assigned to a teacher during the daily Resource Period.

New This Year - Clubs & Activities Online Registration
Starting for the 2018-19 school year, all students wishing to participate in activities, clubs or sports will need to complete the Online Forms through Skyward Family/Student access.  All steps need to be marked as completed including step #8 "SUBMIT SY19 ATHLETIC/CO-CURRICULAR FORMS".  Online Forms only need to be completed once per school year, so if a student participates in a sport as well as a club or activity the Online Forms only need to complete once.

If the student is only participating in an activity or club but will not be participating in a sport, they may mark step 3 complete and do not need to have a Physical Clearance Form completed by their Physician.  

Once the online forms have been completed, the student will then need to pick up an "Orange Card" from the Co-Curricular Office clearing them to participate in their activity or club. Activity/Club organizers will inform students of this change at the first sign up meeting and collect the orange cards before the next regularly scheduled meeting.

Hartford Rotary
Host Families Needed for 2018-2019 
Hartford Rotary's next inbound exchange student will arrive in late August, and be with us, and be a student at Hartford High, until early summer 2019.  We will be lucky to host 17 year old Monika Adamczyk from Chelm in eastern Poland.  Besides being fluent in English she is competent in Spanish.  We would like to get commitments from three families in the Hartford area, each to host her for 3 to 4 month.  Rotary pays a monthly stipend to help Monika have some spending money, and the school chips in with lunch money.  Ask your family if they would like to have this fun and educational opportunity, while providing Monika with the same  opportunities as other young adults in the home.  

Monika is now a sophomore at a Lyceum in Chelm, which is near the Ukrainian border.  She is the only youngster at home weekdays, and her studies emphasize chemistry, biology, Spanish, English and Polish language and literature.  Her older sister studies in Wroclaw and is home weekends.  The sisters get along well and with their parents emphasize the outdoors with hiking, biking and sailing.  She thinks she might like to study dentistry or orthodontology in college, but thinks a year in the US will open up other opportunities for careers related to medicine.  She's fine with household chores, says she is neat and tidy, but isn't into cooking.   She will be a great addition to any receptive family in the area.
