Northern Highlands School Board Emphasizes Tech Use, Approves Funds for Programs

In a recent meeting of the Northern Highlands Regional High School Board of Education on May 22, 2023, the members made significant decisions on various matters such as adopting technology in education due to COVID-19, teacher training improvements, and budget allocation for district programs.

One of the main discussions was based on a report by Mr. James Mulvey from the Delegate Assembly session. The report underscored the board’s approach towards integrating technology in education in the wake of the COVID-19 pandemic. In addition, 12 new bills were introduced with the objective of addressing the teacher shortage and enhancing health and emergency training for teachers. All proposed resolutions received approval from the the Delegate Assembly.

The board also discussed reorganization appointments and approvals as informed by Superintendent Dr. Scot Beckerman. Sue Anne Mather, Alison Altano, and James L. Plosia, Esq. were re-appointed as Secretary of the Board of Education, Treasurer of School Monies, and Board Attorney respectively.

The Highlands Association of Schools and Academies (HASA) expressed gratitude for the Teacher Appreciation Week events and committee grants. HASA also presented the approval of over $34,000 in funding for recurring and one-time programs in the district.

Several software and service renewals were given the green light, which will support the ongoing efforts to incorporate technology into the education system. The board also approved a Trees for Schools Planting Program Grant Application for approximately $18,700.

On the staffing front, the board rescinded some of the previous decisions including the appointments of Lisa Cannillo as Secretary and Julie Goldberg to work on curriculum, professional development, and special projects. In their place, Jennifer Courtney and Therese McIntyre were appointed as Secretaries for different departments.

The meeting concluded with the acceptance of the Harassessment, Intimidation, and Bullying investigation report and the Monthly Student Suspension report.
