On Thursday, June 15, members of the HEA faculty bargaining unit will vote on whether to support the renewal of the charter for the Silver Hill Horace Mann Charter School. This vote is required under Massachusetts General Law Chapter 71, Section 89 (dd), which specifies that the charter’s renewal is contingent on approval by a majority of the members of the local school committee, the local collective bargaining unit and the Board of Elementary and Secondary Education.
The Haverhill Education Association is committed to providing its members as much information as possible from both sides of the Silver Hill Horace Mann Charter School renewal application debate. The complete application and its associated documentation are available for review here.
