Superintendent's Message About Worcester Tuitioning Out
Dear Schenevus Residents,  
The district recently received word that Worcester Central School District is not interested in receiving tuitioned Schenevus Central School students for the 2020-21 school year. This was an option that both districts had been discussing for several months. While we regret that tuitioning Schenevus students to Worcester is no longer an option for 2020-21, we do want to make clear the following:  
The Board of Education and Superintendent will continue to seek solutions to our funding challenges. While it is too soon to say if there are other partners who would be willing to receive Schenevus students in exchange for tuition, we will be exploring those partnerships in the days and weeks to come. We are still very interested in the benefits of tuitioning and acknowledge that other neighboring districts have shown interest in this possibility. We have learned a lot about what is involved in this process, and will make sure that information is discussed with other partners before any discussions happen.  
The merger study is still moving forward, as of today. While Worcester determined that tuitioning Schenevus students was not in its best interest, there may still be advantages to a merger. A special Board of Education meeting scheduled for Jan. 22 at Worcester Central School building at 6:30, to discuss the merger study, will still go forward as planned. More information about the timeline of the merger study will be available at that time.  
We will keep you informed. While this is a time of some uncertainty, know that we will do our very best to keep the community informed as we consider our options and think about what is best for our students and our community. If you have questions or concerns, please contact the district office directly at 607-638-5530.   Thank you for your continued support as we all work through the possibilities that are in the best interest of our students.  
Sincerely, Superintendent Theresa Carlin
