Welcome to SAU 41
District Report Card
The Holidays have come and gone. We enter the New Year with excitement and anticipation. Our senior class has begun receiving acceptance letters and our high school guidance department has begun preparation for the 15-16 school year. Our communities will be gathering on January 12th at the high school gym to hold a public meeting on apportionment. I want to take this opportunity to thank all who served on the apportionment committee or attended meetings on this topic and encourage everyone to join us on Monday, January 12th at 7:00.
The high school continues to prepare for our upcoming visit from the New England Association of Schools and Colleges (March 2015). Our self-evaluation report will be completed shortly and posted on the SAU web site for all to review. We look forward to the committee’s visit and will use this review as another opportunity to improve our school system.
Our budget discussions have progressed and shortly we will be working to finalize our recommendations for the Annual District Meetings. In Hollis, we are projecting an approximate 1.8% reduction to the operating budget. In Brookline, we are negotiating with our teachers and support staff unions to put forth warrant articles for new collective bargaining agreements while finalizing an operating budget that is approximately 5% below last year. At the Coop level we have seen our special education costs and NH retirement contributions escalate. We have worked hard to right size our staffing levels and are projecting a .03% increase to our operating budget. I would like to take this opportunity to thank the budget committees, School Boards and members of both communities who assisted in the development or participated in the discussions regarding the FY 16 budgets.

SAU 41 Strategic Plan
Given the tremendous amount of input received, the Steering Committee feels that the mission, vision, goals, and strategies that make up the Strategic Plan reflect the educational priorities of Hollis and Brookline’s elected officials, School Board members, parents, staff, and students. At each stage of the Plan’s development, the Steering Committee repeatedly reached out to the public to be sure that what the communities wanted is embodied in the Strategic Plan seen in the following pages. The Steering Committee is appreciative of leadership of the New England School Development Council in working with us in this process.
