Howard Haughton is the only person out of eight school board candidates that has children in our schools. He is a former EPSD school board member who is an NJSBA Certified Board Member and has the experience to represent and serve our diverse community.

As a father of three children, two of which are enrolled in our schools, I’ve observed what works well in our district as well as where there are opportunities for improvement. I served on the Board of Education from 2012 to 2015 of which two of those years were as board president.

I am asking for your help, your support and your vote to once again serve and represent you on the Englewood Board of Education.

A lot was accomplished during my three-year tenure on the board.

  • More money was allocated to student programs and activities (band, technology, etc.) to provide enhanced learning opportunities.
  • The first summer PARCC camp was launched to teach students how to use all the computer-provided instruments for the math section of the PARCC.
  • Three union contracts were successfully negotiated (2013-2015 teacher’s contract, 2014-2016 administrator’s contract and the 2015-2018 teacher’s contract).The cost of these contracts fell within the state average.
  • A thorough analysis of the in-state Policy Service Providers was conducted, immediately followed by a comprehensive policy review resulting in recommendations for policy updates.
  • The search for and hiring of an interim superintendent and subsequently a permanent superintendent.
  • The Board’s meeting minutes were enhanced and made easier to understand by using a simple vote-tally sheet.
  • I created a digital Board Member orientation guide that included policies, legal opinions, audits and related findings, budgets, committee reports, contracts and other material.
  • In 2015, I became a Certified Board Member through the New Jersey School Boards Association.

If I am elected, I will put an emphasis on relating all board led initiatives directly and / or indirectly to fostering higher student achievement, enhancing the student experience in our schools and improving the quality of education provided by our school district.

On Tuesday, November 7, 2017, vote for Howard L. Haughton, ballot position #3!
