Fort Plain Board of Education tables merger discussion

During the Apr. 15 regular meeting of the Fort Plain Board of Education, following a previous joint school board meeting with Canajoharie Central School District held on Mar. 31, the Board entered into lengthy discussion and debate regarding possible options for the future of our school district. The Board’s consensus was to continue to pursue shared services with all neighboring districts and perhaps sometime in the future, consider further merger possibilities. Therefore, the Board of Education has decided to pursue a search for a new superintendent who will assume duties of the District on or about July 1, 2015. The Board wishes to invite any community members who would be interested in participating in focus groups to contact the District Office at 518-993-4000 ext. #1000 for consideration.

In other matters, the Board failed to take any action on the resignation of Louis “Rusty” Capece. Therefore, Mr. Capece has agreed to remain on the Board of Education at this time.

The Board of Education also adopted the 2015-2016 budget that requires no tax levy increase for consideration by the public on May19. Visit Fort Plain's Budget page for more information.
