Feb. 25 update

A message from Dr. Wiles:

Dear GCSD Families,

I hope you’ve enjoyed a restful winter break and were able to relish the few days of spring-like weather before the latest storm arrived that closed our offices today. As we prepare to return from break, there are just a few items I would like to share with you.

BOE Meeting: Superintendent Budget Presentation is March 8th

On Tuesday, March 8 the district will be holding a Board of Education meeting at 7 p.m. where we will present the district’s proposed budget to the board and community for the 2022-23 school year. The meeting will be held in the LGI at Guilderland High School and live streamed on the GHS Youtube channel. The community is encouraged to watch or attend.

Results from ThoughtExchange on district budget available

An important part of the process of developing next year’s school budget is to gather feedback and perspective from the Guilderland Central School District community. To do so, the district ran a ThoughtExchange from Feb. 8 – Feb. 14; view the results on the district website.
