Hacienda La Puente School Board to vote on early start of school year

Looks like the next meeting of the Hacienda La Puente School Board on Thursday night will be a busy one. The meeting begins with the recognition of longtime member Norman Hsu, who chose not to run for reelection.

The board then moves into a closed session for the evaluation of the Associate Superintendent, Secondary Schools. They will also discuss the appointments for Director,  Adult Academics and Community
Education; Director, Adult Career and Technology; Program
Administrator, Adult Programs (Workforce Development); and Counselor,
Adult Education. Public Employee Discipline, Dismissal, Release is also on the agenda.

But the most controversial subject will be the motion to approve the district’s 2012-13 and 2013-14 school calendars. The beginning and end dates for K-12 students are as follows:

  • K -12: August 7, 2012 through May 21, 2013
