The Board of the Essex Westford Educational Community Unified Union School District met on March 21st in the Essex High School library. Draft minutes are available here. Highlights of the meeting include:
-The calendars for the 2017-2018 academic year are now available! After a discussion of the philosophy that guided the administration as they aligned all the calendars, the board voted its approval for two calendars. CTE has a few minor differences from the unified calendar that will govern all the other district schools. The calendars are now available on the CCSU website.
-Board Chair Martha Heath shared slides with the Board that will be part of the upcoming budget presentation. Community members are encouraged to attend that informational meeting, which will occur at 6:30 pm on Tuesday, April 4th in the Essex High School auditorium.
-The Board voted to accept the bids received from CCR Transportation (for Westford) and Student Transportation of America (for Essex Junction) to expand district bus transportation. The details of routing will be arranged after input is gathered from the community via an engagement session in April.
The next board meeting will occur on Tuesday, April 4th, beginning with the budget informational session in the Essex High School auditorium.
