PENN YAN—Jeff Morehouse and Kathy Guenther were reelected president and vice president respectively of the Penn Yan Central School District board of education during the group’s reorganizational meeting, July 7.
New board member Jeff Bray was also sworn in prior to the start of the regular meeting and Anita Maroscher was sworn in for another term on the board.
In other business:
Jim Higgins, project manager for LeChase Construction presented his monthly progress report on the Penn Yan Academy capital project. Included in the information presented by Higgins was:
• Work on the locker room is back on schedule.
• A small amount of asbestos was found in the area of the lobby which caused about a week to be lost.
• Seats for the auditorium should be done by July 8. Work is being done on sound balance and the curtain is slated to be hung, July 23.
Higgins said, “Thank you for trying to lock down the academy this summer. We’ve taken over everything. It’s going well.”
Ellen Murphy presented the internal claims auditor report. Murphy listed the eight audit issues that were noted last year and their resolution.
Board members Loni Terpolilli and Ryan Hallings received Honorary Developmental Achievement Citations. Each has completed 30 credits.
The non-resident tuition rate was adopted for the 20210-11 school year at $3,000 for grades Kindergarten through six and $4,000 for seventh to 12.
A donation of $100,000 from the estate of Paul Titus for the Paul and Pauline Titus Scholarship Fund was announced. The estate also funded a $200,000 scholarship earlier in the year. There are guidelines for the scholarship that include investing the principal and using the interest for scholarships. The Titus’ intent was that the scholarship last forever.
The schedule of meetings of the board of education for the upcoming school year was adopted. There was some discussion of rotating the meeting site. Superintendent of schools Ann Orman said she thinks the elementary school, where most meetings are held, is an easier place for people to get to. During the year at least one meeting is scheduled in the two other buildings with most being scheduled in the elementary school cafeteria.
The next meeting of the Penn Yan board of education will be at 7 p.m., July 21.
