Cazenovia High School Action Team 2019-20

September 10th, members of the Cazenovia High School Action Team (HAT), convened for their opening meeting.  This group of students, parents, faculty and administration voluntarily participates in HAT, the high school building’s shared decision making team.

The purpose of the HAT is to increase student achievement by involving a broad base of stakeholders in the decision-making process regarding major issues at the building level. Multiple times throughout the year, HAT Committee members work together to share their unique perspectives and solve problems seen in our school. These issues may be related to the development of student outcomes, methods of measuring achievement, and overseeing the development of curriculums.  HAT members also discuss community relations and communications, the allocation of building funds, staff development and the school environment.

During the 2018-19 school year, HAT members played an important role in the close review of the High School Cell Phone Policy, included in the student code of conduct.  Each June, the HAT committee works with administration to make revisions and additions to the Student Handbook and Code of Conduct.

This year, HAT’s focus will be on the structure of the school day at the High School. This focus area was determined based on survey results gathered from faculty and students during the 2018-19 school year.  HAT members plan to conduct research regarding this topic and will look to elicit input from staff, students and community members to evaluate how the current building schedule supports all of our programs and students.  While HAT cannot decide upon individual schedules, this committee is excited to investigate the best way to formulate our school wide structure of the school day.  The committee values ideas and concerns from all stakeholders and seeks your input.  HAT meetings are open to the public and all stakeholders are welcome to our meetings and encouraged to share your input with any of our members. We look forward to a productive year!  The next HAT committee meeting will be Tuesday, November 12th from 3 – 5 pm in the High School Library.

Marianne Angelillo to Speak at High School on Thursday, 11/21

Written by on . Posted in HS News

Next Thursday, November 21st, at 7 pm, you are invited and encouraged to attend a special parent presentation in the High School Auditorium.  In cooperation with the NYS Governor’s Traffic Safety Commission and S.A.D.D., Cazenovia High School will welcome Marianne Angelillo as a guest speaker.  Marianne, a local resident of Skaneateles, shares a powerful message connected to the profound effect underage drinking has had on her family.  She will share her story of her loss and devastation from the irrevocable consequences of poor choices.  Strong messages regarding accountability, responsibility, and potential consequences are stressed.  Marianne “shares her pain” with students and parents in an effort to save lives and to spare other parents the devastating results of tragedies due to teenage recklessness. 

The day after this parent presentation, students in grades 9 – 12 will hear Marianne’s powerful message on Friday, November 22nd.  We are so fortunate that Marianne has agreed to come and present to our parents the night before.  We encourage you to attend this evening presentation, which will allow parents and families the same exposure to Marianne’s important messages related to keeping teens safe.   This evening is open to all district residents and highly encouraged for parents of high school students. Please see the attached flyer for more information:
