MAUSD COMMUNITY ENGAGEMENT COMMITTEE
The goal of the CEC is to engage the Mt Abraham Unified Supervisory District community in a meaningful manner to inform the general vision for long term planning and student success. As our District grapples with the challenges facing many school districts throughout the state, we are actively seeking ways to engage and inform the community. In the Fall of 2019 through conversations throughout the Five Town Community, we identified eight core education values. These values, as well as this planning timeline, are helping to guide the School Board and administrators in this work.
In early December, Superintendent Patrick Reen will be presenting several options to the School Board for their consideration in planning for the future of our District. The Board will evaluate these options to determine which, if any, to bring to voters for support on Town Meeting Day. Before making this determination, the Board will host several informational meetings for the community in mid-December and will then send out a survey to all residents of the Five Towns for feedback on these options. The survey can be filled out electronically or through a paper copy sent in the mail. In order to be sure we have input from as many members of our community as possible, we urge you to share your feedback with us through this survey.
VIRTUAL TOWN HALLS
On October 14 and October 20, we held two Virtual Town Halls to update our community about this process and our current situation. If you weren’t able to attend, you can view the recordings here:
October 14 Virtual Town Hall
October 20 Virtual Town Hall
In addition, here is a combined summary of the two events, including links to the presentation and related documents.
We have also put together a series of short videos designed to share information in a way that is convenient and easy for community members to access. The first video, now live, provides some background to understanding our current situation. The second video includes financial information and the third will present a vision for how we might move forward. A third video will be coming out soon.
