Superintendent
 
Dear District Residents:

I’d like to share with you a few pieces of news about our district.

 
Copenhagen Wind Project
As I have shared with you before, OwnEnergy, Brooklyn, NY, is planning to build an 80-megawatt wind farm within the boundaries of the Town of Denmark.  During this past year, they have been working with the local municipalities to come to an agreement on a PILOT (payment-in-lieu-of-tax).  I was encouraged to see that on January 12, 2015, the Town of Denmark voted to accept the financial term sheet associated with the proposed Copenhagen Wind Farm PILOT.  This puts the district in position to do the same with hopes that the project will be up and running by 2017. 
 
School Closure 
Over the past few weeks, I’ve been asked may times, “How many snow days do we have left?”  After last year when we entered February with only one remaining day, we felt it was important to add to the days we put into the 2014-2015 calendar.  We began this year with nine days available for inclement weather.  At the time of this writing, we have used four; so the correct answer to “How many snow days do we have left?” is five.  When we delay the start of school or dismiss early, those days still count as a day of instruction.  We are mandated to have 176 instructional days each school year, so the next question is, “What if we have to close school more than five times before June 25?”  The correct answer to that is we will have to add instructional days during the week of March 30 - April 3.   Having said that, let’s hope for mild weather the remainder of the school year.
 
Thank You
                On January 18, I completed my fourth year as your superintendent.  It has been a pleasure serving the Board of Education, faculty, staff, students and community.   During these difficult economic times and the implementation of reform agenda, it has been quite a challenge; but I have enjoyed every minute of it.   I’d like to thank everyone who has assisted me in this journey.  It is greatly appreciated.  I am happy to say that Copenhagen Central School continues to offer each and even child we serve a high quality education. 

                As always, your support of our school is greatly appreciated. 

                                                                        Sincerely,
                                                                              Scott N. Connell
                                                                              Superintendent
