Dear Huntington School District Residents:
I’d like to express my sincerest thanks to the Huntington community for supporting the 2012-2013 school district budget. As a result of this support, we will maintain our ability to provide a high quality education for our students in a fiscally responsible manner. Additionally, as a result of community support for the capital proposition, we will be able to make needed improvements to buildings throughout the district with no effect on the tax rate. I further extend my appreciation to all who assumed an active role and provided input during the budget development process.
We have successfully navigated through budget construction during a difficult financial time – one that is likely to continue for several years. We will persist in our efforts to realize cost savings and efficiencies with the goal of easing the tax burden, while striving to provide our students with an educational program that thoroughly prepares them for college and the 21st century workplace.
Open lines of communication are critical and I encourage district residents to contact us at any time during the year, whether it is to express concerns, ask questions, or recognize a student or staff member accomplishment. I am confident that we can build further upon a renewed sense of hopefulness and unity, which will translate to increased student growth and achievement, parental involvement, and community-based collaboration.
Once again, thank you for your confidence in the Huntington School District and for your belief in our children and their future.
James Polansky, Superintendent of Schools
