Trumansburg Central School District to Conduct Facilities Use Study
The Trumansburg Central School District will be conducting a 5-month Facilities Use Study, beginning in May 2016, with presentation of the final report to the Board of Education in November 2016. The study will be conducted by a School and Community Advisory Committee, which is made up of school administrators, staff, and community members, and led by consultants Alan Pole and William Silky from Syracuse based firm Castallo and Silky, LLC. Superintendent Michael McGuire and district staff will serve as a resource to the committee. The purpose of the study is to take a proactive approach and look into future building use, creating a thoughtful roadmap of how TCSD might educationally and fiscally reconfigure grades and/or facilities to provide a sound instructional program now and in the future.
The Advisory Committee will meet monthly, and meetings are open to the public for observation, with time allotted for question and comment at the end of each meeting. Meeting dates are as follows:
