School Board Meeting Recordings
Meeting Highlights: June 2022
Student Recognitions: Dr. Lentz recognized rising third grader Evelyn Sirman, who received the NHS Education Fund Youth Art Exhibition Award from the LES. Evelyn's artwork will be permanently displayed in NHSSD hallways. Recent graduates Kyle Northrup and Joshua Shiller were celebrated for accepting collegiate roster positions. Kyle will join the track team at Gettysburg College, and Josh will join the baseball team at Susquehanna University. Members of the track team who competed in the PIAA State Championships were also honored for their exemplary performance in the recent competition held at Shippensburg University: Caroline Berman, Drew Connor, Nina Meixler, Marco DeMeo, Jack Feehan, Aidan Ferraez, Skylar High, Cameron Kolinchak, Kyle Northrup, and Naava Richlin.
2023/24 High School Block Schedule Approved: A new HS block schedule was approved for implementation in the 2023/24 school year. The block schedule will extend classroom sessions to 80 minutes (offered in an AB format) and include a lunch-and-learn open block period. Students will be permitted to use this open period for various purposes, such as individual meetings with teachers or for college and career programs. The revised schedule has support from HS faculty and staff, who will be prepped for the transition throughout the 2022/23 school year.
STEAM Lab Vendor Contracts Approved: Following board approval of vendor contracts, construction will soon be underway for the HS STEAM Lab, which is scheduled to open for instruction in Spring 2023. The STEAM Lab is designed to host three classes simultaneously, with several instructional spaces connected by a "street" theme. Equipment and furniture will be flexible and mobile to offer a variety of instructional options. The renderings include a full broadcast studio, engineering design space, and a robotics arena with stadium seating. View the renderings here.
The Board of School Directors also approved the following:
- a revised Health and Safety Plan
