School Board announces new Superintendent
The Hopkinton School Board is excited to announce Michael Flynn as the new Superintendent of Schools effective July 1, 2021. Mr. Flynn lives in Windham with his wife and three children. For the past eight years, he has been part of the Timberlane and Hampstead School District community, most recently serving as Executive Director of 21st Century Learning, Assessment, overseeing curriculum, instruction, assessment, and technology. Mr. Flynn holds a Master of Business Administration (MBA), a Master of Business Education, and an Educational Specialist Degree in Educational Administration and Supervision.
Beyond his educational, business, and school district leadership experience, however, Mike is an incredibly hard working, dedicated individual, eager to help champion the Hopkinton School District forward, building upon our strengths and tackling our challenges. He prides himself in always being able to see the good in people, as well as his communication and relationship-building skill sets.
Mike will be transitioning into the district throughout the spring, so he can hit the ground running come July. Please be sure to extend him a warm welcome virtually, over email, or in person, once we are able to be out and about again safely!

08/15/2020 Voting Results for August 15th
Once again, thank you very much for coming out to vote today. Thank you for your cooperation, patience, and participation.
The votes have been counted, and I am pleased to declare the following results:
Question 1: the new rules pursuant to HB 1129: YES: 1309 NO: 195. (11 Blanks) Question 1 PASSES
Article 3, as amended by the School Board pursuant to HB 1129: to adopt an operating budget of $20,923,855:
Yes: 922 No: 593 Amended Article 3 PASSES
Again, I would like to thank the voters for their participation again. I would also like to thank our law enforcement officers who helped with set-up and crowd control. And to the volunteer vote counters, supervisors of the checklist and their greeter assistants, the school board, the budget committee, the many advocates for and against who continue to display their pride and concern for our community, those who helped spread the word about all aspects of the meeting, and everyone else who helped make this meeting happen under our present conditions. Thanks also to the weather for cooperating for each and every one of our drive through voting sessions. Thank you.
Because Question 1 and Article 3, as amended, passed, the school board has this amended budget approved.
I would like to take this opportunity, my last chance at the virtual lectern during this year’s meeting, to ask that we all, as a community, continue the hard work to listen to one another. Let’s come to together and hear our differences, and consider the validity of our neighbors’ opinions. I also ask that signs advocating positions related to the meeting be removed as soon as possible as part of our healing process. Now, there being no further business before this meeting, this meeting is adjourned, over, closed, and done. I look forward to seeing you at next year’s meeting.
