Superintendent Update - January 5

Families, Staff, & Community -   

Curriculum, Instruction, and Assessment Updates 

I hope students, families, staff, and the community enjoyed the holiday break. I find as the calendar turns to a new year it is a time of reflection and a time to review goals and priorities. As students and staff return to school this week, teachers are reviewing academic goals with students. In January, students in grades Kindergarten through grade 8 will be completing the I-Ready assessment. This assessment provides a mid-year academic progress update on students’ reading and mathematics growth. At the high school, students will be completing the mid-year assessments during the week starting on Tuesday, January 16. After these assessments are completed, please continue to monitor your student’s academic progress.  

Alvirne High School will be completing their Senior Capstone Projects with presentations scheduled for the week of January 8th. The presentations show students' attainment of high school competencies and skills as outlined in the Portrait of a Graduate. If you have the opportunity on Monday, January 8 from 3:00-5:00pm or 6:00-8:00pm, please stop by, as these presentations are open to the public. 

Budget Updates

The Budget Committee has made cuts to the proposed fiscal year 2024-25 budget of just over $1.9 million, as of their meeting on January 3rd. The details of the budget reductions will be discussed at the upcoming School Board meeting. There are still several steps to the budget process before the final vote on Tuesday, March 12.   

Thursday, January 11 - Budget Committee Public Hearing

Hudson community members can share feedback with the Budget Committee during the public hearing scheduled for January 11th starting at 7pm at the Community Center. The meeting will begin with a hearing on the town’s budget, to be followed by a hearing on the district’s budget. The Budget Committee will have a final vote on warrant articles at the end of the meeting. 

Saturday, February 10 - School Deliberative Session

The deliberative session is an opportunity for Hudson’s registered voters to review, discuss and make changes to the proposed warrant articles. This meeting will start at 9am at the Community Center. The finalized warrant articles will appear on the ballot in March.

Tuesday, March 12 - Election Day - Town and School

Registered voters will decide on local elected officials and budgets for the town and school district.


Have a great weekend.
