    • Work together in a spirit of harmony, respect and cooperation
    • Participate in professional development, training and board retreats
    • Collaborate with the Superintendent as the Team of 10
       

    Govern Effectively

    • Adhere to an established set of rules and procedures for board operations
    • Develop, adopt, revise and review policy
    • Align decisions to policy
    • Differentiate between governance and management, delegating management tasks to administration • Allocate finances and resources
    • Ensure compliance with local, state and federal laws

    Plan Thoughtfully

    • Adopt and implement a collaborative comprehensive planning process, including regular reviews

    Communicate Clearly

    • Promote open, honest and respectful dialogue among the board, staff and community
    • Encourage input and support for the district from the school community
    • Protect confidentiality
    • Honor the sanctity of executive session
       

    Act Ethically

    • Never use the position for improper benefit to self or others
    • Act to avoid actual or perceived conflicts of interest
    • Recognize the absence of authority outside of the collective board
    • Respect the role, authority and input of the Superintendent
    • Balance the responsibility to provide educational programs with being stewards of community resources
    • Abide by the majority decision

    RESOLVED, that the Board of School Directors of Hollidaysburg Area School District, makes the following unconditional certifications:

    1. The school district’s various tax levies and other revenue sources will be sufficient to balance the school district final budget for the next fiscal year 2021-2022 based on maintaining current tax rates or increasing tax rates by an amount less than or equal to the Act 1 index applicable to the school district as calculated by the Pennsylvania Department of Education.  This conclusion is based on the school district preliminary budget or other information available to the School Board.
       
    2. The applicable index for the next fiscal year is 3.7%, and the School Board will not for the next fiscal year increase the rate of its real estate tax, or any other tax for the support of public education, by an amount that exceeds the applicable index.
       
    3. The School Board has to date and in the future will comply with the rules set forth in School Code § 687 for adoption of the school district proposed and final budgets for the next fiscal year.

    1. Penn State University ELA Research Study

    From Sarah:

    The associate dean for the College of Education at PSU, Dr. Rayne Sperling, contacted me regarding possible participation in a nationwide research study on student preference and performance on curriculum-based writing tasks. The study would ask my willing students to write two responses based on different story starters and answer some questions to determine writing self-efficacy. The study would take about one hour for students to complete, and participation is entirely optional. The study has Institutional Review Board approval.

     

    I wanted to reach out to you to determine if it is permissible to offer participation to my students and their families (included in this email is the study's Consent for Research parents would need to review and complete if interested). Dr. Sperling is happy to meet to share more about the study if you or district administrators have questions. The Consent for Research provides a more in-depth look at the study for your reference too.

    1. PSBA Travel Accident Insurance

    Information

    • Basic Coverage is free to all board members.
       
    • 24hr Coverage is optional.  **See rates on enrollment form.

      If you choose this option, please complete the enrollment form, submit the form and a check for the appropriate amount made payable to HASD General Fund to Linda Conway, Business Office by December 11, 2020.  If you choose the optional coverage, you are required to complete the enrollment form.
       
    • Coverage begins January 1, 2021.
       
    • Complete a beneficiary form if you wish to update/change your beneficiary information. Return completed forms to Linda Conway, Business Office, as soon as possible. 

    Whether traveling to an advocacy event, school board meeting, or district function, it is vital to be able to focus on what matters most. That is why the Pennsylvania School Boards Association (PSBA) Insurance Trust proudly partners with The Prudential Insurance Company of America (Prudential) to offer exceptional Business Travel Accident (BTA) and Optional Accidental Death and Dismemberment (AD&D) insurance coverage to the commonwealth’s school directors. 

    As a way of showing our gratitude for all the hard work you do as a school director, PSBA provides BTA coverage at no cost.  BTA insurance covers all school directors for accidental death or injury that occurs while you are attending or travelling to and from board-sponsored business.

    24-Hour Optional AD&D insurance coverage
    Want more extensive coverage for yourself, your spouse or your children? We have you protected with a 24-hour Optional AD&D plan.  
    This Prudential plan helps cover accidental death or qualifying injuries, no matter where or when the accident occurs. You may select coverage in the amount of $150,000 for yourself at a cost of $35.50 annually. You may also select $50,000 of coverage for your spouse at a cost of $13.50 annually and $10,000 of coverage for all your eligible children at a cost of $3.00 annually.
     
    Please note that this coverage replaces BTA coverage; it is not a supplement to the complimentary plan.

    PSBA Officer Elections: Slate of Candidates 2020

    PSBA members seeking election to office for the association were required to submit a nomination form no later than June 1, 2020, to be considered. All candidates who properly completed applications by the deadline are included on the slate of candidates below. In addition, the Leadership Development Committee met via Zoom on June 5th and 6th to interview candidates. According to bylaws, the Leadership Development Committee may determine candidates highly qualified for the office they seek. This is noted next to each person’s name with an asterisk (*).

    Voting procedure

    Each member entity will have one vote for each officer. This will require boards of the various school entities to come to a consensus on each candidate and cast their vote electronically during the open voting period (Aug. 23 – Oct. 11, 2020).

    Voting will be accomplished through a secure third-party, web-based voting site that will require a password login. One person from each member entity will be authorized as the official person to register the vote on behalf of his or her entity. In the case of school districts, intermediate units, career and technical centers, it will be the board secretary who will cast votes. In the case of community colleges, the president is designated as the authorized registrar.

    Special note: Boards should be sure to add discussion and voting on candidates to their agenda during one of their meetings in August, September or October before the open voting period ends.

    1. Resolution to Authorize the Superintendent to Modify, Amend, and/or Update the District's Phased School Reopening Health and Safety Plan

    Now, therefore, inasmuch as the aforementioned is foreseeable in light of the changes that the District has seen over the last several months as a result of the COVID-19 Pandemic, the Board hereby authorizes and approves the Superintendent of Schools to undertake the necessary steps to modify, amend, and/or otherwise update the District’s Phased School Reopening Health and Safety Plan as needed from the effective date of this Motion up through the end of the 2020-2021 school year as is otherwise needed or required to be in compliance with any additional federal or state mandates, guidance, orders, or advisories that would impact the school, staff, students and the District’s options relative to delivery models. These updates shall be provided to the Board as they occur and be considered for approval as may be required.

    1. District's Phased School Reopening Health and Safety Plan - REVISED

    The revised School District's Health and Safety Plan will serve as the local guidelines for all instructional and non- instructional school reopening activities. 

    1. Emergency Instructional Time Template Section 520.1

     As communicated to chief school administrators on July 6, 2020, Section 520.1 of the School Code provides flexibility to meet minimum instructional time requirements in the event of an emergency that prevents a school entity from providing for the attendance of all pupils or usual hours of classes at the school entity. The Pennsylvania Department of Education (PDE) considers the World Health Organization-declared Coronavirus disease (COVID-19) a global pandemic and an emergency as contemplated by Section 520.1. A local education agency (LEA) that elects to implement temporary provisions in response to the COVID-19 global pandemic may meet the minimum 180 days of instruction and 900 hours of instruction at the elementary level and 990 hours of instruction at the secondary level through a combination of face-to-face and remote instruction, consistent with the requirements outlined in PDE’s July 6 guidance.

    1. Pool Counsel Technology in Education

    Per Board Policy 005 - Organization, approve Sweet, Stevens, Katz, Williams, LLP for The Technology in Education Pool counsel service to give legal advice on technology in education through the Appalachia IU08 effective July 1, 2020 through June 30, 2021 Cost:  $600

    1. New Business

     Per Board Policy 006 Meetings, the following agreements are presented for approval:

    1. Agreement with Child Advocates of Blair County for Agreement with Child Advocates of Blair County "Head Start" effective July 1, 2020 through June 30, 2021 for rental of (2) classrooms at Frankstown Elementary School for the 2020-2021 school year.  Revenue: $200 per month per classroom
       
    2. Agreement with Blair Regional YMCA for classroom rental at Charles W. Longer and Foot of Ten Elementary Schools for before and after-school care effective August 26, 2020 through July 31, 2021.  Revenue: Full months: $200/month per classroom; Partial months: $50/week per classroom

    In circumstances where an expenditure is to be made for a purpose for which amounts are available in multiple fund balance classifications, the order in which resources will be expended is as follows: restricted fund balance, followed by committed fund balance, assigned fund balance, and lastly, unassigned fund balance.

    NOW, THEREFORE BE IT RESOLVED, that the Board of School Directors of Hollidaysburg Area School District recommits the following portions of its June 30, 2020 Capital Reserve Fund balance as follows:

    BE IT RESOLVED, that the Board of School Directors of Hollidaysburg Area School District recommits $400,000 from the Foot of Ten Roof Project Committed Fund Balance and transfers $400,000 to the Unassigned Capital Reserve Fund Balance.

    1. Continuity of Education Plan
    • Superintendent Robert Gildea will discuss the district's Continuity of Education plan. Each school district in the commonwealth, as per Act 13, is required to submit an educational plan that has been put in place for the duration of the coronavirus school closure that will ensure all students are receiving the best education possible in an online platform. 
    1. Policy Waivers

    The Administration recommends the board make a motion to modify the following board policies due to extraordinary circumstances caused by the COVID-19 pandemic, with said action to be made effective immediately and remain in effect until December 31, 2020 unless otherwise noted.

    • Policy 213-R Grading of Student Progress -  Grades for all subjects for the fourth marking period of the 2019-20 school year will be noted as pass/fail with a score of 70%  or higher considered passing and scores below 70% considered failing.  In addition, as per administrative procedures, there will be no honor roll for the fourth marking period and scheduling requirements for the  2020-2021 school year would be determined by grades earned during the first, second and third marking periods of the 2019-20 school year.
       
    • Policy 214 - Class Rank - As a result of the 2019-2020 4th marking period grades being noted as pass/fail, the 2019-2020 4th MP grades will NOT count toward a student's class rank.
       
    • Policy 217 - Graduation - The graduation project for the Class of 2020 would be removed as a requirement in addition to the requirement to pass the Keystone Exam(s) or locally designed assessment.
       
    • Requirements for induction into the National Honor Society (NHS) - The only requirement for seniors (class of 2020) would be the academic requirement. All other requirements would be waived.  
    1. Graduation Proposal

    Per policy 217 "Graduation", the administration is requesting board approval of a prom and graduation ceremony plan that presents multiple alternate dates throughout the subsequent months following the projected end of the 2019-2020 school year to adjust to current social distancing and travel bans related to the coronavirus.

    1. Resolution for Charter School Funding Reform

     

    NOW, THEREFORE BE IT RESOLVED that the Hollidaysburg Area School District School Board calls upon the General Assembly to meaningfully revise the existing flawed charter school funding systems for regular and special education to ensure that school districts and taxpayers are no longer overpaying these schools or reimbursing for costs the charter schools do not incur. We, along with the Pennsylvania School Boards Association, are advocating for substantial change.

    RESOLVED this 15th day of January, 2020, This Board policy supports the Principles for Governance and Leadership adopted by the Board and signed by individual school directors. Pennsylvania school boards are committed to providing every student the opportunity to grow and achieve. The actions taken by the board ultimately have both short and long-term impact in the classroom. Therefore, school directors collectively and individually will:

    Advocate Earnestly

    • Promote public education as a keystone of democracy
    • Engage the community by seeking input, building support networks, and generating action
    • Champion public education by engaging members of local, state and federal legislative bodies

    Lead Responsibly

    • Prepare for, attend and actively participate in board meetings
    • Work together in a spirit of harmony, respect and cooperation
    • Participate in professional development, training and board retreats
    • Collaborate with the Superintendent as the Team of 10

    Govern Effectively

    • Adhere to an established set of rules and procedures for board operations
    • Develop, adopt, revise and review policy
    • Align decisions to policy
    • Differentiate between governance and management, delegating management tasks to administration
    • Allocate finances and resources
    • Ensure compliance with local, state and federal laws

    Plan Thoughtfully

    • Adopt and implement a collaborative comprehensive planning process, including regular reviews
    • Set annual goals that are aligned with the comprehensive plan
    • Develop a financial plan that anticipates both short and long-term needs

    Evaluate Continuously

    • Utilize appropriate data to make informed decisions

    Communicate Clearly

    • Promote open, honest and respectful dialogue among the board, staff and community
    • Encourage input and support for the district from the school community
    • Protect confidentiality
    • Honor the sanctity of executive session                                                    

    Act Ethically

    • Never use the position for improper benefit to self or others
    • Act to avoid actual or perceived conflicts of interest
    • Recognize the absence of authority outside of the collective board
    • Respect the role, authority and input of the Superintendent
    • Balance the responsibility to provide educational programs with being stewards of community resources

    1. President's Report / Dr. Sommer

     

    1. Resolution Supporting the Enactment of Legislation Codifying Flexible Instructional Days Into Law

     

    THE HOLLIDAYSBURG AREA SCHOOL DISTRICT BOARD OF DIRECTORS RESOLUTION SUPPORTING THE ENACTMENT OF LEGISLATION CODIFYING FLEXIBLE INSTRUCTIONAL DAYS INTO LAW 

    WHEREAS, with the passage of Act 64 of 2019, section 1506 was added to the Public School Code enabling public education entities the opportunity to develop a Flexible Instructional Day (FID) program to meet the 180-day instructional day requirement of section 1501;

    WHEREAS, FIDS employ non-traditional strategies to provide a continuity of instruction on regularly-scheduled school days during which circumstances necessitate an alternate approach;

    WHEREAS, the Hollidaysburg Area School District Board of Directors fully supports the enactment of the aforementioned legislation to permit school districts to use up to five (5) FID days per calendar year due to adverse weather conditions;

    WHEREAS, FIDs can support the public school entities in cases when circumstances (e.g., a disease epidemic, a hazardous weather condition, a law enforcement emergency, the inoperability of school buses or other equipment necessary to the public school entity’s operation, damage to a school building, or a temporary circumstance rendering any portion of a school building unfit or unsafe for use) prevent the delivery of instruction in its customary manner or location;

    WHEREAS, on the day prior to the FID, students will leave school with a clear understanding of and access to the work that will need to be completed at home the following day. All assigned work will be a continuation of the educational program


    WHEREAS, students in grades K-6 will be provided work to be completed including all materials necessary to complete the assigned work. Teachers of students in grades 7-12 who have access to Chromebooks will ensure that all assignments are posted in the Google Classroom for their perspective classes;

    WHEREAS, students with no Internet access at home will be provided with a paper copy of all material or local electronic copy on their Chromebooks prior to the end of the school day.

    NOW THEREFORE BE IT RESOLVED by the Hollidaysburg Area School District Board of Directors that:

    The District approves the use of Flexible Instructional Days when severe weather conditions, as determined by the Superintendent or his/her designee, make it unsafe to conduct a normal school day. The Board of Directors empowers the Superintendent or his/her designee to develop procedures to ensure continuity to the educational program and effective implementation of the Flexible Instructional Day.

    Board Members will be asked to come to a consensus to vote for the 2020 PSBA Officers, At-large Representatives, Insurance Trust Trustees, and School Board Secretaries Forum.

    Admin Content

    Voting procedure

    Each member entity will have one vote for each officer. This will require boards of the various school entities to come to a consensus on each candidate and cast their vote electronically during the open voting period (Aug. 23 – Oct. 11, 2019).  Voting will be accomplished through a secure third-party, web-based voting site that will require a password login. One person from each member entity will be authorized as the official person to register the vote on behalf of his or her entity. In the case of school districts, intermediate units, career and technical centers, it will be the board secretary who will cast votes. In the case of community colleges, the president is designated as the authorized registrar. A

    full packet of instructions and a printed slate will be sent to authorized vote registrars the week of August 9.

     

    Special note: Boards should be sure to add discussion and voting on candidates to their agenda during one of their meetings in August, September or October before the open voting period ends.
