All five members on the Humboldt Unified School District governing board needed swearing in at its first meeting of the year, an unusual circumstance according to Tim Carter, Yavapai County School superintendent who administered the oath.

Carter appointed three members - Gary Hicks, Suzie Roth and Brian Letendre - in a September Yavapai County Board of Supervisors meeting to terms beginning Jan. 1. Prior to that meeting, he had appointed Letendre to finish out Gary Marks' appointment after Marks resigned in May; that position ended Dec. 31.

The board elected its new president and vice-president, returning incumbents Rich Adler and Carm Staker, respectively.

The board rotates its meetings at each of the schools, giving the host principals an opportunity to talk about what's going on at their schools. The principal and Supt. Paul Stanton also honor as VIPs one certified and one classified staff member at the meeting.

Cole Young, principal at Humboldt Elementary School, selected Karen Rivenes, Title I aide, as the district's classified VIP, and Mo Holt, Title I teacher, as the certified VIP. He said the school's goal for the Reading Counts program is to reach 50,000 points by the end of the school year. Students earn points by reading books and passing tests. This year's reward has something to do with the principal wearing a wedding dress to school. Young also said he was applying for National Title I Distinguished School honors.

Diana Green, director of Educational Services, presented the second half of her report on the Galileo assessment program for grades 1-6 reading and math scores. This is the district's first year using this assessment program that is a predictor of how students will perform on the Arizona's Instrument to Measure Standards. It uses two types of assessments, and from those results, teachers can identify where gaps exist in individual students' mastery of math and reading skills.

The HUSD governing board meets at 6:30 p.m. on the second Tuesday of the month, with the Feb. 12 meeting to take place at Lake Valley Elementary School.
