Welcome to SAU 41
Hollis Brookline Cooperative, Start Time Committee
The Hollis Brookline Cooperative School Board is establishing the Start Time Committee for the purpose of gathering relevant information, gauging public sentiment, and making recommendations relevant to the start time of the Cooperative School District.
The committee's mission is to analyze the pros and cons of changing to a later start time for the Cooperative District. Their work will include but not limited to a public survey, financial impact analysis, traffic analysis and impact on all school activities and programs The committee will tender their recommendations and justification to the school board for review no later than September 2016.
The Holidays have come and gone. We enter the New Year with excitement and anticipation. Our senior class has begun receiving acceptance letters and our high school guidance department has begun preparation for the 16-17 school year. The high school continues to reflect on the commendations and recommendations from our most recent visit from the New England Association of Schools and Colleges (March 2015). The visiting committee’s report is posted on the high school web site for all to review. We will use this report as another opportunity to improve our exceptional school system.
Our budget discussions have progressed and shortly we will be working to finalize our recommendations for our Annual Meetings. In Hollis, we are proposing all-day Kindergarten while negotiating with our teachers and Para-professionals unions. In Brookline, we are anticipating a level funded budget while discussing options to maintain or reduce class sizes where possible. At the Coop level we have proposed funding for a new science lab, while requesting support for our technology initiatives. Our special education costs at the Coop have escalated and we continue to negotiate with the teachers and Para-professional unions regarding a new contract. I would like to take this opportunity to thank the budget committees, School Boards and members of both communities who assisted in the development or participated in the discussions regarding the FY 17 budgets.

SAU 41 Strategic Plan

At each stage of the Plan’s development, the Steering Committee repeatedly reached out to the public to be sure that what the communities wanted is embodied in the Strategic Plan seen in the following pages.
