VOTE FOR SCHOOLS ON DECEMBER 10: Directors approved $5,000 to help fund the campaign to get out the vote on December 10 to support Huntsville City Schools. Our children could lose out on school funding because old laws are excluding taxpayers in growing parts of Huntsville. This is an important vote that does not raise taxes and will be the only item on the ballot, so voter turnout is key. Spread the word and don’t forget to vote FOR our schools on December 10th. More information can be found at www.VoteForSchools1210.com .
CARAVAN: The Board approved moving Caravan to the second Friday of each month. This change will take effect when the program starts up again in February of 2020.
TRAINING OUR TEACHERS: Directors also approved sending $10,000 to the Creative Cities Fund to support the training of National Board Certified Teachers in Madison County. Board Certification allows teachers to hone their practice, showcase their talent in the classroom and demonstrate their dedication to their students and their profession. There is currently a backlog of local educators waiting to earn their certification and this funding will help five teachers better themselves and better our schools. Anyone can donate to this program through the Creative Cities Fund. Find out more information HERE .
As noted above, Tuesday was the final meeting of Officers and Directors in 2019, and the last for many of our outgoing board members. HAAR and ValleyMLS.com is grateful to these members for their service to our association, our MLS, and our industry at large.
To our Leadership Team, thank you for your steady leadership, innovative approach in guiding us through 2019, and making this year the incredible journey that it was.
