At the June 23, 2020 Regular Meeting of the Board of Trustees, the Board accepted the resignation of Superintendent Gregg Haulk, who will retire effective August 1. The Board will begin a search for his replacement immediately with plans for new leadership announced by mid-fall 2020. Former Buena Park Superintendent Greg Magnuson will assume interim duties until that time.
Recently the California Department of Education and California Department of Public Health released updated guidance on safely opening schools for the 2020-2021 school year. As we review the guidance documents, Huntington Beach City School District will use the guidance documents along with input from stakeholders to plan for the 2020-2021 school year. The input from you, our HBCSD families, is an essential part of our planning process to safely open our schools. We will be sending out a parent survey directly to parent email addresses on Wednesday, June 17. The email will come from Qualtrics, a vendor that Orange County Department of Education uses. Please check your spam folder if you do not see the email. The plans to safely reopen schools will continue to be developed and evolve throughout the summer as more information becomes available. Follow up information with more specific details regarding our 2020-2021 plans will be sent to families at a later date. We appreciate your input and hope you continue to be well through these uncertain times.
