Hasbrouck Heights Board of Education Provides Depken Field Update

The Hasbrouck Heights Board of Education has recently made a series of impactful decisions regarding the 2022-2023 and 2023-2024 school years, in a meeting held on May 18, 2023. The actions taken ranged from the approval of various contracts, programs, and personnel appointments, to significant updates on the district’s financial standing and future infrastructure projects.

Of notable interest to the community was an update on the progress of the bleacher project at Depken Field. Local residents had raised concerns about the timeline of the project. EI Associates and Nickerson, the companies overseeing the project, addressed these worries, assuring residents of their commitment to timely completion.

The district’s financial situation, including the usage of COVID grants, was brought into focus by Interim School Business Administrator and Board Secretary, Robert Brown. This update was particularly important in light of the global economic challenges that school districts have faced due to the pandemic.

Key resolutions were passed during the meeting, a majority of which were based on the recommendations of the Superintendent of Schools. Among these, the Board approved the Summer Music Program, slated to run from June 27, 2023, through July 21, 2023, and several initiatives including professional development math books, administration of Kindergarten Inventory of Skills Assessments, and a High School Wellness Day Program.

In the realm of special education, the Board ratified various contracts and provisions for specific students, including Extended School Year and Regular School Year services at multiple specialized education institutions. These measures, alongside therapy services and evaluations, promise to extend comprehensive support to students requiring special education.

Several other appointments were approved for the upcoming school years. A tenured track position for a Middle School Language Arts teacher at a salary of $56,300 was sanctioned for the 2023-2024 school year. Skyler Bancroft was appointed as a long-term substitute Art Teacher from June 1, 2023, through June 23, 2023, at a daily rate of $150.

Among routine resolutions, a typographical error in the 2023-2024 school year calendar was amended to reflect that if more than three snow days are used, schools will operate during Spring Recess. The Board also renewed its contract with IXL, an online subscription-based learning platform, at a total expenditure of $23,863, underscoring its commitment to digital learning.

The Board unanimously approved these resolutions, highlighting its focus on maintaining robust educational services, improving infrastructure, and securing the district’s financial standing amid challenging times. While public concerns were raised on multiple topics, the board showed its commitment to transparency and community engagement by addressing these issues during the meeting.
