Excerpt from the message from the superintendent posted on the Newburgh School District website:
...the District still faces a deficit of approximately $8.9 million.
On April 4, 2013, the Board of Education will be holding a budget workshop at Meadow Hill School, from 6pm to 8pm. At this time the Board will consider the following recommendations to address the budget shortfall:
* Closing of one of the following elementary schools: Balmville, Horizons-on-the Hudson or Vails Gate,
* Reduction of Full day Kindergarten to half-day Kindergarten,
* Programmatic and staff reductions
As in previous budget workshop sessions there will be 30 minutes allotted for public input on alternate suggestions to reduce the budget gap. Parties interested in speaking should contact the District Clerk, Matthew McCoy, at 845-563-3503 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
