BOE Meeting Summary

The Board of Education met November 9 for its regular meeting. Here is a summary.

  • CPA James Amell, with Marvin and Company, presented the findings of the district’s external audit. New York State requires school districts to have the audits each year. The audit found no major issues but Mr. Amell noted Schalmont CSD, like many districts, has some excessive fund balance due to the school closure last year. Some of those funds will be used to offset additional costs incurred this year for COVID-19 precautions. Presentation available here.
  • Student representatives Adriana DiCocco and Matthew Weise shared upcoming events for the High School including the drama club production and music event that will utilize videotaping to preserve student opportunities in a safe manner.

The next Board of Education meeting will be Monday, November 23 at 7:00 p.m. We will share details about how the public can join virtually closer to the meeting date.
