Here are the highlights of the meeting:

Mrs. Jones was absent.


A presentation was given by Hammond students and staff this evening. The HHS choir sang, and a partnership with various organizations and some sectors of the community were recognized this evening.

The Hammond Reads Essay contest winners were announced this evening.


The Hammond Education Foundation gave a report on the Blueprint Program, which is to help with various aspects of college access, including applying, filling out the federal forms, applying for scholarships, etc.


The next regular school board meeting will be on Monday May 1st 6pm 41 Williams Street. The 2nd regular meeting will be on Monday May 15th 6pm at Jefferson Elementary.

Public Expression 2nd Session(no speakers 1st session):

There were several speakers this evening on the subject of alleged unfairness and racial discrimination in the transportation sector of the SCH. It was stated that this is an ongoing problem. Allegedly, employees are not being told about management positions available, until it is too late to apply for the positions. Allegedly, the bus drivers and monitors are not treated well.

My Take:

The HHS choir was great !!! :) Congratulations to all the honorees this evening.

The bus driver/monitor issue has been going on for several years. Why hasn't something been done to correct this???

I am a life-long Hammond Resident. I am a practicing Catholic, and an adherant to the Teachings of Saint Francis of Assisi, who truly was the first enviornmentalist. He loved and appreciated all of God's creation, and I try my best to do the same.
