December Update

Hello ESU 9!

The following is a quick review for the month of December.

ESU 9 Board Meeting

During the December meeting, the ESU 9 Board officially welcomed new board member Jodi Graves. Dave Fisher, who recently resigned from the board was honored for thirty years of service to ESU 9.

The board also approved the hiring of an architect from WDesign, who will provide the necessary expertise to fulfill the requirements of renovating the new facility.

All Staff Meeting Review

Thank you for your time on December 22nd!!

Amy and Kristen did a great job sharing information about ESU 9s “Service Framework.” We also talked about changes as we move forward with our continuous improvement process (CIP). Specifically, there will be four committees as we move forward: Communication, Data, Community Outreach/Marketing and Climate (Rah! Rah!). We will let you know who is on what committee when the ballots have been counted.

Hearts & Hands Against Hunger

The 90 minutes we spent working on our community service project was impressive. We are one of numerous community groups that have helped fill over 5 million bags of nutritious meals at the Hearts & Hands Against Hunger location. That’s a great deal of food, when you consider that each bag of food can feed six children. Way to go team!!

Moving to the New Building

Finally, this is one of several “friendly reminders” you will probably hear about moving: Everyone is responsible for packing and labeling their personal belongings, files, materials, & supplies. The second semester will pass by as quickly as the first; please plan accordingly.

Thank you all for all you do.
