All Board Members voted Yes-5 No- 0 motion carried PUBLIC PARTICIPATION On behalf of the arts program Anita Masiello addressed the plan to downsize the elementary art and music programs by half next year. Although the elementary arts are the most difficult to schedule they are the most rewarding programs when you watch students grow into their own. She is concerned with any reduction that students won’t be able to meet the NYS standards. For many students art and music are an outlet and skills build upon another each year, much like academics. Marylou Shaughnessy thanked the Board for always supporting the Wildcat programs. Wildcat Programs include students that participate in the musical, jazz band band and chorus. Art shows are very important to allow students to showcase their talent. Any reduction or loss of the arts would be a great disservice to our wildcats. SUPT REPORT Supt. Gratto stated that the National Honor Society Induction took place this week and it was nice to see parents in the building again. He presented additional information that has become available since the budget was adopted. The budget adopted preserved all current programs, expanded summer school and included the expense of replacing the fuel tank and hot water heater. Fund Balance was used to balance the budget, send money to the repair reserve and pay for a twenty two passenger school bus. State aid runs are now available and it appears we will be getting an increase in state aid and foundation aide. The American Rescue Aid Act is a grant that will be given to each school to help with expenses related to the pandemic. There is little guidance as to how the grant money can be spent and what the timeline will be to spend it. Districts are required to post a plan for the use of the funds by July 1, 2021. Mr. Gratto will look to the Leadership committee and the shared decision making committee to help with these decisions once there is further guidance. Mr. Gratto thanked Susan Repko for securing a $5000.00 grant to supplement the summer school program. The program called Summer Spark will consist of half a day academics and a half day recreation program run by the YMCA. More information will be coming soon.
