An Excerpt from Superintendent David Young's Convocation Message on Believing
 
“I believe in this district and in every one of you. I want you to collectively believe in us and know that we must continue to work at developing trust and sharing and transferring our knowledge and wisdom to the students we serve, and to each other. Perhaps this short video clip affirms this belief and the wonderful work we are entrusted to provide.”    Click Here

 
The following poem was shared by Superintendent Young with staff during his convocation message.

Turning to One Another
-Margaret J. Wheatley

There is no greater power than a community discovering
what it cares about.

Ask “What is possible?” not “What’s wrong?” Keep asking.
Notice what you care about.
Assume that many others share your dreams.

Be brave enough to start a conversation that matters.
Talk to people you know.
Talk to people you don’t know.
Talk to people you never talk to.

Be intrigued by the differences you hear.
Expect to be surprised.
Treasure curiosity more than certainty.

Invite in everybody who cares to work on what’s possible.
Acknowledge that everyone is an expert about something.
Know that creative solutions come from new connections.

Remember, you don’t fear people whose story you know.
Real listening always brings people closer together.

Trust that meaningful conversations can change your world.
Rely on human goodness. Stay together.

South Burlington High School Window Project

Last March, voters approved funds to replace some of the old, single-pane windows with new, energy-efficient window units.  In accordance with state and federal law, we tested the caulk and glazing on the current windows for the presence of hazardous materials.  This testing revealed low levels of polychlorinated biphenyls (commonly referred to as PCBs) in the glazing, and the presence of both PCBs and asbestos in the caulk on the exterior of the windows.
