HHS Adds 'Food to Table' and 'Plant Science' Classes

No word yet on Jenean Bingham complaint.


Healdsburg High School will add two new agriculture-related classes to its curriculum, the principal announced Wednesday.

"Food to Table" and "Plant Science" will both become available for students later this year, principal Chris Vanden Heuvel told the Healdsburg Unified School District board.

"It's very relevant to viticulture and everything that's happening locally," Vanden Heuvel said of the new additions.

Of the two, only the "Plant Science" class will be eligible toward college credits.

The "Food to Table" class will be an elective that is part of the school's culinary arts curriculum -- and may be of interest to students who want to continue in Santa Rosa Junior College's culinary program, he said.

However, it will not be eligible for college prep credits, he said.

In other business, the HUSD board delayed any announcements on a complaint filed by former Athletic Director and Track Coach Jenean Bingham.

"We haven't yet decided on a course of action," said HUSD President Vince Dougherty. "Everything is still on the table."

contacted at home later Wednesday, said she would decline comment at the present time.
