Superintendent
Dear District Residents:
I would like to share with you a few pieces of news about our district.
2015-2016 Budget
† † † † † On January 21, Governor Cuomo presented his executive budget for 2015. †To say what he presented was a shock would an understatement.† He is refusing to provide schools with state aid runs (the amount for funding that we will receive so we can create a budget) until the legislators agree to the terms of his agenda.† This is making it impossible to create a budget for next year.† Over 70 percent of our revenue comes from state funding.† Presently the word from his office is if an agreement canít be reached, we will receive the same funding that we did in 2014.† With increased costs in health care benefits, teacher and employee retirement system benefits, electricity cost and salaries, it is impossible to offer the quality of education that the state constitution is required to provide every student.
† † † † † I have met with our legislators Ken Blankenbush (D-District 117) and Joseph Griffo (R-District 47) to express my deep concerns over the actions of our Governor.† I would welcome everyone to contact them as well. †Please do not hesitate to give me a call if you would like more information about the Governorís flawed education reform agenda.† Here is the contact information for our legislators at their local and Albany offices:

† † † † † The Copenhagen Teachers Association has also been very active in the fight to restore the funding our students so deserve.
Ambulance in Copenhagen
† † † † † In an effort to shorten their response time in this area, Lewis Country Search and Rescue will be keeping one of their ambulances in our bus garage.† They will start by keeping it here on a limited basis with hopes of making it permanent.† They are looking for anyone who may be interested in becoming a volunteer EMT or driver.† If you are interested, please contact Justin Astafan, Chief of Operations, at 376-7745. ††

† † † † † † † † † † † † † † † † † † † † † † † † † † † † † † † † † † Sincerely,
† † † † † † † † † † † † † † † † † † † † † † † † † † † † † † † † † † Scott N. Connell
† † † † † † † † † † † † † † † † † † † † † † † † † † † † † † † † † † Superintendent of Schools
