And finally, please note that the HUUSD board is also hosting multiple "Community Conversations" throughout our district from May 7 through May 23 and we hope you consider attending at least one, perhaps in a location other than your own town! The purpose of the community conversations is to dive deeper into survey results and get to the next level of developing a vision and goals that will guide decisions throughout our district. Stay tuned for specific dates and locations.
Thank you for your continued support and engagement.
