The Hawthorn Reorganization Committee has been organized and has met twice. During these first two meetings, the committee set meeting timetables and clarified the purpose of the group’s work.
As background, the Reorganization Committee was formed at the recommendation of the AYP Committee to the Board of Education. (More information about the work of the AYP Committee is available on the District website in the April archives.) While the unfortunate AYP situation in the state and our own district was the catalyst for the formation of this committee, it has been evident that it is not the only reason for the work being done.
In general, the Reorganization Committee’s work is to analyze the design of the district and work to align our resources to equitably meet the needs of all of our students.
The committee will be inviting public input through surveys and public meetings before a recommendation is made to the Board. Please watch for information about those opportunities in the coming weeks.
