The Connector Newsletter

  • Upon arriving at HCDE in late 2015, Superintendent James Colbert began writing a weekly newsletter to the Board of Trustees to keep them abreast of happenings within the department. The Connector was born and became a weekly staple at HCDE that not only showcases highlights within the department but also keeps the board updated on HCDE’s progress toward identified system goals. The Connector is sent to the board and posted online every Friday. Each volume represents a school year, with individual issues showcasing individual weekly newsletters.
