ELECTRIC BUSES

The California Energy Commission's School Bus Replacement Program awarded $1.95 million to Hanford Elementary School District to replace 5 diesel school buses with ELECTRIC BUSES. The program is helping schools throughout the state transition from old, polluting diesel school buses to zero- or low-emissions vehicles, improving children's health by limiting their exposure to transportation-related air pollution and building the green economy.

HESD is proud of our new ELECTRIC BUSES and is the only school district in Kings County with electric buses on the road. Hanford citizens will be able to easily identify our new electric buses due to their green bumpers and rims.

Thank you, California Energy Commission!

Annual Title 1 Meeting

Each year, our school convenes an annual meeting, at a convenient time, to which all parents of participating children are invited and encouraged to attend.  The purpose of this meeting is to inform parents and family members of their school’s participation in the Title I, Part A program and to explain the requirements and the right of the parents to be involved.

 

For the 2020-2021 school year, due to the COVID-19 pandemic and the Governor’s executive order closing school sites, and in an effort to keep our families and community members safe, the 2020-2021 Annual Title I meeting will be presented in recorded format.  This presentation is available in English and Spanish and can be viewed at any time. Links with contact information and for parent/community input will be shown on the last slide in this presentation.
