Havre Public Schools SPRING, 2014 “A TRADITION OF EXCELLENCE!” HHS Softball Practice Career Day at Havre High School Recess at Sunnyside INCLUDES COMMUNITY EDUCATION CLASSES 2 — Havre Daily News, April 18 / Hi-Line Shopper, April 23, 2014 Community Education Spring 2014 Superintendent’s Message… For the first time in several school years there will be a school election. At this time, there will be no mill levy vote an d that is often a major draw to voters for school ballots. There are three Havre Trustee positions that will be decided upon by voters in our community. It is always encouraging to have folks willing to serve in this capacity and I am thankful for the individuals that have stepped forward to give of their time and talents to help guide Havre Public Schools policy and decision making. School Trustees face many challenges, make difficult decisions, and give countless hours of volunteered time that often goes unnoticed. It is not a position that brings accolades and notoriety, but definitely one that can interrupt regular sleep patterns. School board members often go unnoticed throughout a majority of their time served, right up until there is a controversial matter put before them or the school district encounters financial issues. The role of an individual school board member is often misunderstood by the general public and it can be challenging to opera te in an open forum capacity. Every word and decision they make has their name attached to it for all to critique and second guess. Making decisions based upon the whole versus the individual can at times put trustees in direct opposition to the very community members they voluntarily serve. It can become a burdensome task working diligently throughout the year trying to provide the best possible learning environment for students that the board can with the resources afforded to them. I have experienced these moments first hand and watched good people deal with some very difficult circumstances. There may not be a levy on this year’s school ballot, but the decision facing the voters of this community is no less meaningful. I encourage you to make it to the polling booths or to send in your absentee ballots in the upcoming school election. I want to thank our two incumbents Cindy Erickson and Dr. Curtis Smeby for their time served as board members as well as Bobbi Teasley, Tim Scheele and Ericka Everly for their willingness to place their names on the upcoming ballots to serve Havre Public Schools for the next three school years. I also want to thank Dr. Darlene Bricker for her years of service to the Havre Board of Trustees and wish her well in the next chapter of her life.
