Letter From Huntington PTA Council President
On May 20th the Huntington Union Free School District, like school districts across the state, will offer its 2014-2015 school budget for the community’s approval. I encourage all district residents to take the time to support your community and the students of our district by voting on the 20th at Huntington High School between 6am and 9pm.
The proposed budget is one which will allow Huntington to continue its commitment to a high quality education for its students with a strong academic program. The most dramatic addition to this year’s budget proposal is the restoration of full day kindergarten, after three years of a half day program, for our district’s youngest learners. The board was able to propose the restoration of kindergarten while maintaining the district’s other academic and extra-curricular activities and staying within the tax levy limits because of non-instructional cost-savings and a wage freeze agreed to by the Associated Teacher of Huntington. The complete details of the proposed budget can be found on the school district website at HUFSD.edu.
A school district vote is one of the most direct and simplest ways each of us can affect change in our community. Please take a moment on May 20th to stop by Huntington High School and cast your vote. If you have a few extra minutes stroll down to the gymnasium to view the impressive art show which displays the work of the district’s incredibly talented artists.
Very truly yours,
Huntington Council of PTA
