Superintendent Terry Dougherty
Thank you for supporting our
’Cat Resurgence!
Hello, friends. We survived the late winter snow and now we anxiously await the start of spring (and more daylight!). I am very pleased to report that the ’Cat Resurgence plan to increase in-person teaching and learning is working famously. Our students, faculty and staff have responded extremely well to the challenge of “reducing risk in order to increase opportunities for our students and stakeholders.”

As more and more people get vaccinated, and as the COVID-19 infection rate continues to decline, the District will continue to gradually, safely and prudently increase activities at school. I remain extremely grateful to all of our community stakeholders for your unwavering support throughout the course of the COVID-19 pandemic.

March and April are two very important months for the Board of Education and our Administrative Team, as we are finalizing the proposed 2021-22 school district budget. At first glance, it appears as though a very generous increase in federal funding coupled with the District’s ongoing commitment to sound fiscal planning will result in a proposed budget that maintains current program and staffing levels. That said, negotiations between the Legislature and the Governor remain ongoing as the final New York State budget is set to be ratified on April 1. We will keep you updated as events unfold.

Finally, a reminder that, moving forward, all inclement weather days that result in unsafe and impassible roads, and otherwise would have called for an emergency closing day, will result in the District transitioning to a remote learning approach. Please work to ensure your child is prepared to learn in this fashion should the need arise.

Please accept my best wishes and warmest regards.
