Huntington School Board Considers Draft Goals for 2023/24

October 4, 2023

Huntington School Board members discussed a set of five draft goals for the 2023/24 school year during a public meeting of the trustees this past Tuesday night in the Adam Spector Auditorium at Jack Abrams STEM Magnet School.

Progress toward meeting the goals is typically reviewed periodically by trustees during public meetings throughout the year.

The seven trustees include President Xavier Palacios, Vice President Michele Kustera, Christine Biernacki, Kelly Donovan, Bill Dwyer, Thomas Galvin and Theresa Sullivan. The group will vote on a finalized version of the goals during an upcoming public meeting.

The draft goals for 2023/24 include:

1. Engage in an ongoing review of best practices and research related to district and school safety measures to remain prepared for unanticipated situations.

2. Maintain the district’s commitment to enhancing its culture of appreciation for the diverse nature of our school district community and its students through alignment of curriculum and instruction, recruiting and hiring practices, and professional development.

3. Implement and evaluate programs that support the social and emotional well-being of our students and staff to build upon interpersonal connections throughout the district.

4. Utilize student data for the purpose of developing actionable items designed to address learning gaps and to promote both growth and achievement on an individualized basis.

5. Continue to increase measures that promote comprehensive parent/guardian engagement and a welcoming environment in all district schools.
