Board of Education Meeting August 28, 2014 from Haddonfield Civic Association on Vimeo.

The last summer meeting of the BOE had the paying of bills, the approval of new hires, a statement on the new school year by the superintendent, and a show of Union force from the Haddonfield Education Association rank-and-file as they urged the BOE to settle the now expired contract with the teachers. A marathon session with a private mediator held during August failed to produce a contract. It was stated the next step was to work with a state appointed mediator in the next few weeks.

Haddonfield Planning Board Meeting July 1, 2014 from Haddonfield Civic Association on Vimeo.

The July 1 Meeting to hear the application on the subdivision of 605 Warwick Rd started with a discussion on the completeness of the application before the board. The major discussion point was the need for a stop sign and related traffic study at Gill and Treaty Elms due to the proposed new driveway in the plan. After opinion of the Borough Engineer that the stop sign and study were necessary regardless of this application, in a 6-3 vote the Planning Board accepted the application as complete and began to hear argument on the application itself. Due to the late hour of the proceedings the application process will continue at the August meeting. The major discussion that took place at this meeting surrounded the storm water runoff portion of the subdivision plan.

The highlight of the June 26th Haddonfield Board of Education meeting was a presentation on population trends facing the borough over the next 5 years. Haddonfield defies State trends by having a slightly decreasing population, lower birthrates than average but still has a growing student population. Haddonfiled currently has the highest number of students in district since 1971 when 2600 students were enrolled and the demographer forecast we could go over 2800 students in the next 5 years. The meeting began with recognition of district and state winners in Science Olympiad from Elizabeth Haddon, Odyssey of the Mind from Central School as well as a Presidential Scholar from the High School that recognized a student and a teacher from HMHS.
