Northern Highlands Welcomes New Student Reps, Charts Course for Coming School Year

In a recent public meeting convened on June 19, 2023, the Northern Highlands Regional High School Board of Education made significant strides in setting the direction for the upcoming 2023-2024 school year. The meeting, attended by Board members and student representatives, covered a wide range of issues, from financial decisions to curricular updates and administrative changes.

One of the most noteworthy decisions was the transfer of an anticipated surplus of up to $2 million into a Capital Reserve account. This move reflects the school’s healthy financial standing, as the budget surplus enables the creation of this reserve account.

The board approved a slew of other financial decisions, including budget allocations for various technology supports and cloud subscriptions for the upcoming academic year. Approval was also given to the price list for Pomptonian Food Service at Northern Highlands Regional High School for the 2023-2024 academic year.

Regarding educational programming, the board approved several new and returning programs for the upcoming school year. The McKinney-Vento Education of Homeless Children and Youth Program, Marshall Summative Evaluation System, District Professional Development Plan, and District Comprehensive Mentor Program Plan were among the initiatives authorized.

The meeting also highlighted the successful sports season reported by Dr. Andrew Prince during the Northern Highlands Sports Association Meeting. A successful golf fundraiser was held, netting $22,000, with a breakfast hosted for students committed to collegiate sports. This points towards an overall high level of engagement in the school’s athletic programs.

In administrative matters, the Superintendent, Dr. Scot Beckerman, welcomed two new student representatives for the 2023-2024 school year, Drishti Chauhan and Maddison Petrow. Amy Pierret was appointed as an Instructional Coach.

Towards the end of the meeting, a request from Mr. Kevin Woods, a public participant, caught attention. He suggested that future board meetings be streamed live. Dr. Beckerman responded stated that this would be considered in future discussions, but failing to commit to a plan of action.
