Board of Education Meeting Highlights

At the meeting of the Holmdel Board of Education held on August 30, the agenda included the following highlights:

The board welcomed new faculty and staff members to the district for the 2017-2018 school year. The board also gratefully accepted non-monetary donations from the Holmdel Runners, Jumpers, and Throwers Club (t-shirts); Hilton Hotel (fitness room equipment); and the William R. Satz Parent Support Group (culinary arts equipment and appliances).

The board adopted new or revised curriculum guides written by staff members for 37 courses and approved a Memorandum of Understanding between Holmdel High School and Rutgers University School of Health Professions to offer college-level courses to Holmdel High School students.

The board approved a motion to pursue Future Ready Schools Certification and considered a presentation of draft district goals for the 2017-2018 school year, as well as reminding community members of the September 26 referendum vote on the Holmdel 2020 Initiative. The board also provided updates on various committee meetings held during the previous month and wished everyone a great start to the school year!
