Going Away to College

As summer starts to wind down, hundreds of residents are about to embark on an exciting, and somewhat scary journey: starting college. Some of Livingston’s youth have already left for their new schools, while others will depart from town in the coming weeks. It’s a momentous step, but our young residents are well prepared to head to college, and to succeed, thanks in no small part to their upbringing in this town and its stellar school and support systems.

And don’t forget, students and parents, to stop by Town Hall before heading off to college to register for absentee ballots for November’s elections. For many students, it will be the first time they will be able to cast a vote, and we wouldn’t want any residents missing that opportunity.

Superintendent Explains Board Election Policies

School superintendent Dr. Matthew Block, at the August 14 school board meeting, clarified the school district policies and responsibilities that govern elections while also praising the four candidates seeking seats on the board.

“It’s a lot of work, it’s all volunteer, to serve the district and community... kudos to everyone for putting their names forward,” he said.

The district has two policies, 7510 (Use of School Facilities) and 9700 (Special Interest Groups) that deal with elections. These policies restrict the use of school buildings for political events or for political reasons, as well as the handing out of election materials, particularly to students, on school grounds, Block explained.
