Union School Board Grapples with Program Cuts and Staff Concerns

Overview: The Union School Board meeting was dominated by discussions surrounding proposed cuts to instructional time in subjects such as art, music, computers, library, and Spanish for elementary students, and the non-renewal of certain staff positions. Community members, including parents, educators, and students, voiced concerns about the potential negative impact of these cuts on the cognitive, emotional, and social development of students, with special attention to the implications for students of color and those with special needs. The superintendent addressed these concerns, emphasizing the necessity for improved academic outcomes and the need for stakeholder collaboration, while also recognizing the contributions of education support professionals and highlighting the district’s zero confirmed cases of Health Incident and Behavior (HIB) for the reporting period.

Overview: The Union School Board recently convened to address several issues, with the most focus on the implementation and success of an energy savings program that exceeded expectations, and the discussion of student well-being, including the support for grief counseling and awareness of mental health services. The energy savings program, spearheaded by Schneider Electric, reported a 1% increase in savings beyond projections and solar panels operating at 101% efficiency. Additionally, the board discussed the importance of grief counseling services and recognized the contributions of staff and community members in supporting student and staff mental health.

Overview: The Union School Board meeting brought to light developments within the school district, including the approval of new budgets with an unprecedented increase in state aid, the recognition of high-achieving students and athletes, and the implementation of community partnerships and programs. These topics, along with the remembrance of two beloved former teachers, were among one notable issues addressed.

Overview: The Union School Board convened to address several resolutions and initiatives designed to enhance the educational environment and support services for students. Among the most developments were the approval of a new hybrid assembly resolution for math education and the acceptance of funds designated for the second year of a school-based mental health grant.

Overview: In the most recent Union School Board meeting, attention was given to the state of the district’s special education services. The discussion centered around the findings of a review conducted by Gary Mullenar, the assistant superintendent at the Ed Services Commission of New Jersey. The review highlighted concerns about special education staffing, the need for professional development, and the importance of consistent counseling services for students. The board also scrutinized the district’s financial health, receiving an unmodified opinion from fiscal auditors on the annual audit. Moreover, the meeting recognized community and student achievements, including the success of Union High School’s cosmetology program and the acceptance of two students into West Point.
