We know our school community is experiencing a deep level of pain and outrage due to the horrific murder of George Floyd. We will continue to remain united in our fight against racism, hate and bigotry in all forms. The safety and well-being of our students will always be our utmost priority.
Before you do anything else, view the Catch a Great Book! video, created by library and literacy specialists from each of our schools!
Then, check out our Summer Reading Page, where there's something for everyone.
On our Summer Reading Page, you'll find suggestions of books selected by our library media specialists, based on what they know kids love! You can find a book by grade, topic or genre... it's easy and will get you excited about all the things you can read this summer!
Through Summer Reading, we want to encourage the enjoyment of reading and to develop our students’ abilities to choose books for themselves.
On Saturday, May 16, the Hamden Legislative Council met to discuss and decide on funding for Hamden Public Schools for the 2020-21 school year. The Council members received and reviewed a presentation on the Board of Education's approved budget. You can view Superintendent of Schools Jody Goeler's opening remarks.
After five hours of discussion, the Legislative Council decided to allot funds far less than the Board of Education had requested. This allocation will necessitate $2.8 million in reductions districtwide.
