Merger report available for review

Schenevus and Worcester school district residents are invited to participate in a public forum on Jan. 19 to discuss the findings of the annexation merger study report prepared by consultants Castallo & Silky LLC. While it was hoped to have this forum in person, it will be conducted virtually via Zoom, given the current COVID-19 restrictions. More details about the Jan. 19 forum will be available next week.

The report can be read online at Printed copies will also be available at the district offices of both school buildings by Monday, Jan. 11. Please call the district office at either school to request a copy.  

The 133-page report reviews the two districts’ enrollment, educational programs, facilities, transportation, staffing and finances. While the report does not argue for or against a merger, it does include recommendations for a merged district, if an annexation merger were to occur. The report also details the merger incentive aid that would be available to a merged district.
