Welcome to SAU 41
Coop Start Time Survey
Last spring the Hollis Brookline High School Student Council delivered a presentation to the Hollis Brookline Cooperative School Board on starting the school day later. As a result of that presentation (https://goo.gl/j1rOvq), the School Board created a committee to study the feasibility of a later-starting school day. This brief survey is an attempt by that committee to collect feedback from community stakeholders. The information from the survey will help drive possible recommendations that the Start Time Committee makes to the School Board.
Further information about adolescents and sleep can be found on this Google Doc: http://tinyurl.com/hwzdm2l. Currently in SAU41 the middle school and high school students are scheduled to be picked up between 6:24 and 6:38 a.m. in Hollis and between 6:05 and 6:20 a.m. in Brookline.
As we quickly approach April, I want to provide you with an update regarding a variety of subjects.
Our budget season ended with the Hollis Brookline Cooperative Annual School District Meeting on March 23rd. On behalf of the SAU, please allow me to extend my thanks to the voters of Brookline, Hollis, and the Cooperative District for supporting our educational requests.
March has also seen us produce school plays, end a successful athletic season, and begin preparations for spring. At the high school, our seniors are receiving notifications of acceptances from colleges. At the primary, elementary, and middle school levels, staff and administration are working diligently regarding the transition process for our students.
In early April, we will be finalizing the school calendar for the 2016-2017 school year. It is our goal to have the calendar approved and posted by April vacation.
In closing, I want to say thank you to our families for sharing your students with us on a daily basis. As I have stated in the past, our staff and students are doing remarkable work, and I feel privileged to serve as their Superintendent.

SAU 41 Strategic Plan
Given the tremendous amount of input received, the Steering Committee feels that the mission, vision, goals, and strategies that make up the Strategic Plan reflect the educational priorities of Hollis and Brookline’s elected officials, School Board members, parents, staff, and students. 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. The Steering Committee is appreciative of leadership of the New England School Development Council in working with us in this process.
