Community meeting scheduled for June 16 to discuss results of recent building capacity study

June 5, 2014—On Monday, June 16, Guilderland Central School District will host a community meeting with Dr. Paul Seversky, a consultant with the Planning Service at the Madison-Oneida BOCES, to discuss the results of the recent district-wide building capacity study. The meeting will be held at 7 p.m. in the Guilderland High School Large Group Instruction (LGI) room and all community members are invited to attend.

Led by Dr. Seversky, the study began last fall and consisted of data-collection and research to determine whether or not there may be more cost-effective ways for Guilderland to deliver its K-12 programming.

Throughout the past several months, Dr. Seversky looked at the district’s current use of space and scheduling patterns as well as current enrollment and future enrollment trends. Based on the data collected, Dr. Seversky prepared a report outlining several options for use of existing space and program delivery models. This report will be the main topic of the June 16 community meeting. Download a copy of the report to be discussed on June 16 (PDF). Print copies will also be available on the night of the event.

Dr. Seversky will also discuss “next steps” for the building capacity study process, including community focus groups to be scheduled for this fall. In addition, there will be time for community members to ask questions about the study and the findings of the report.

The findings and options for consideration presented in the building capacity study are sure to be an important topic of discussion throughout the coming year. For that reason, we encourage you to learn more about the study and look forward to seeing you on June 16.
