Penn Yan school board 04/22/09

Meeting: The Penn Yan Central School District board of education met for approximately 35 minutes, Wednesday April 22.
Attendance: Board member Nancy Scher was excused. Two members of the public were in the audience.
Action: The board agreed to designate May 22 as a school holiday providing no additional emergency closing days are used prior to that date.
• Approved cancellation of the April 29 board of education meeting.
• Designated a 2002 Dodge  Ram 4x4 dump truck with plow as surplus and authorized interim Business Administrator Rodger Lewis to dispose of it as he deems most appropriate.
• Voted for Wayne-Finger Lakes Board of Cooperative Educational Services board  (BOCES) and approved the tentative budget in the amount $2,864,432.
• Approved a 2009-10 agreement with Project Lead the Way, Inc for Biomedical Sciences following a presentation by Assistant Superintendent for Instruction and Staff Development Howard Dennis and Academy Assistant Principal Rebecca Perrault. Perrault said the program is a sister to the engineering program offered at the academy during the past seven years. The new program will help address impending critical shortage of qualified science and health professionals and prepare participating students for rigorous post-secondary education at two and four-year colleges and universities. A sequence of four courses will be offered. Twenty-eight students have expressed strong interest in the program. There are 108 enrolled in the engineering program at the academy.
Discussion without action:  Superintendent of Schools Ann Orman said, “In looking at all of the regulations related to stabilization funding we will use a bit more to reduce the tax levy to zero percent increase. We  are still waiting for guidance and accountability on other parts of the program.”
• Orman spoke about the Branchport School building which was appraised at $251,500 in December 2008. She said there is one group interested in the building but no formal offer has been made. Orman asked anybody interested in purchasing the building to contact the district and speak with Lewis. As soon as the district gets a proposal it will be brought back to the board.
Bids/purchases over $1,000: Approved a contract with Dundee Central School District for provision of 20 percent of Penn Yan Central School District’s Speech Pathologist Services at a cost not to exceed $2,904 fort the remainder of the 2008-09 school year and $10,500 for the 2009-10 school year.
