The unified board met on June 21st, 2016, in the Essex High School library. Draft minutes are posted here. Highlights of the meeting include:
-Superintendent DeNova introduced the new Chief Financial Officer of CCSU, Katherine “Deac” Decarreau, who joins us from the City of Winooski. Read more about the appointment in the Essex Reporter.
-The board approved a recommendation by district leaders regarding the new Financial Information System. By adopting the system currently used in Essex Town and about 60% of Vermont school districts, the district will not only achieve savings in yearly software maintenance costs, but should also interface more easily with other districts and the state, and have more voice in the future development of the system.
-The board considered a further proposal from consultants to conduct the Superintendent Search, and will consider a contract at the August 1 meeting.
The board will not meet in July, but will next convene on August 1. Please note that this is a Monday!
