School renovation project ahead of schedule

PENN YAN—A public hearing on the proposed 2010-2011 Penn Yan Central School District budget and an update on the capital project at the Academy were the two main topics during the May 5 meeting of the Penn Yan Central School District board of education meeting.
Jim Higgins of LeChase Construction has been attending meetings of the board of education for several months to present progress reports and May 5 he had more good news about the renovation project at the Academy for the board.
Higgins said April was a busy month and during the vacation break they “took over everything.” The project continues to be a little bit ahead of schedule. The Fitness and Science areas as well as the team room have been part of the focus and site work is continuing. The roof, locker room, lobby, auditorium and band and chorus rooms are also targeted this month. Higgins commented, “It’s going to be a busy time.”
Assistant Superintendent for Business Doug Tomandl took the floor next to present an overview of the budget and changes that totaled a 1.72 percent increase in the total budget.
In other business: Several tenure appointments were approved including Assistant Middle School Principal Warren Kinsey, effective June 28, and School District Administrator David Pullen, effective Aug. 1. Others granted tenure and their tenure areas are Mary Christensen, elementary education; Brett Darrow, mathematics; Deanna Gnage, social worker; Elizabeth Marino, art; Dan Miller, science; Lindsay Molisani, speech therapist; Katherine Moore, special education; Deb Nielsen, teaching assistant; Stephanie Smolos, elementary education; Kris Wilber, physical education and Stephen Willson, social studies. Appointments are effective Sept. 1 with the exception of Christensen’s, which is effective Sept. 18.
• The board accepted a donation in the amount of $1,400 from Young Entrepreneur’s Academy (YEA) of Rochester for the Penn Yan Academy YEA Club.
• Donation of $1,089 worth of books from the Penn Yan Elementary Parent Teacher Group from the Scholastic Book Fair or the elementary school library was accepted.
The next meeting of the Penn Yan Central School District board of education will be at 7 p.m. May 26 at 7 p.m. in the elementary school cafeteria.
