Seeking community volunteers
Investigating Alternative Uses of Space: Repurposing Task Force


The Guilderland Central School District Board of Education is seeking community volunteers to serve on a new task force, "Investigating Alternative Uses of Space: Repurposing Task Force." The purpose of the task force will be to review and investigate a variety of options for repurposing excess space in one or more buildings in the Guilderland Central School District. The task force will consider issues such as the need, viability, logistics, and potential for generating revenue for potential alternative uses for excess space within the district.

Individuals representing a variety of stakeholder groups and attendance zones will be selected for the task force by the Board of Education. Once appointed, task force members will be expected to attend 6-8 meetings. Meeting dates and times will be determined as best as possible, based on the convenience of those individuals selected. At the conclusion of its work, the task force, or sub-groups within the task force, will present their findings and recommendations to the Superintendent of Schools and the full Board of Education for consideration.

Roles and responsibilities of task force members
