My Action Plan for College

Helping students and families to create a personalized action plan for college.

“Important Priorities: School Libraries, Community Partnerships and College Planning” by Ernest Minelli 

The citizens of Hull entrust our school leadership team to provide excellent educational opportunities for all of our students.  I am seeking a position on the Hull School Committee to advocate for essential educational priorities: school library staffing, college and career planning, parent and community involvement, safe and sustainable fields for our student-athletes, and the successful implementation of our "Hull Public Schools’ Strategic Plan: 2019-2025."

Hull's dedicated educators facilitate positive gains in our students' literacy development. Integrating professional library services district-wide would help to solidify these important learning connections.  Specifically, I envision the restoration of a school librarian position to serve the needs of the Jacobs School and the Memorial Middle School, based on input from our school principals regarding the best implementation of such an educational position.  Having professional library services for all three of our schools would enhance the positive literacy framework at each stage of child and adolescent development.  I would also promote an even closer working relationship with our Hull Public Library to offer enhanced programs and services to facilitate an even stronger confluence of library and literacy programs.

Community partnerships and outreach to our students' families represent excellent avenues for collaboration.  For example, I aim to raise awareness of "blue light" exposure, especially as our students navigate their learning via increasingly digitally-driven platforms.  I am currently organizing a future workshop that would feature a local eye-care doctor and a local pediatrician to educate students and parents about reasonable "screen time" usage, coupled with the promotion of consistent circadian rhythms for healthy child and adolescent sleep patterns.

Our schools have made positive advances in their college and career planning services.  Specifically, I support the continued implementation of enrichment opportunities at the Memorial Middle School, and of the Freshman Seminar program and related guidance support services at Hull High School.  Working in conjunction with fellow educators and town leaders, I would also make an active effort to attract even more college representatives to visit with our high school students and families through college-planning workshops and information sessions.  We could also utilize the school district's "mini-bus" to access important college and career planning events on the South Shore and in the Greater Boston area.

Congratulations are in order for the student-athletes of our community, as the new athletic playing surface at Finlayson Field will represent a renewed sense of stability regarding our program planning for high school and youth sports.  All of Hull's co-curricular activities serve to enrich the lives and the educational experiences of our students, and I enthusiastically support the wide variety of clubs and organizations that thrive in our public schools.

As a prospective Hull School Committee member, I would work in conjunction with our educational leadership team to set a positive tone, and to advocate for the needs of our students, families and educators.  We have an excellent opportunity to ensure a quality education for all of Hull's students.  I welcome your ideas:  ernie@post.harvard.edu
