Skaneateles school district opens new chapter with new leaders

— “One more year for me as president and that’s it -- we’ll rotate,” Dreyfuss said of his intention to limit his presidential spot to two years. “I really believe that when you rotate the presidency it makes a better, deeper, stronger board.”

BOE member Kathryn Carlson was unanimously elected as BOE vice president.

During its annual reorganizational meeting, the school board appointed or reappointed individuals to serve in various district roles, such as the clerk of the board, district treasurer, tax collector, purchasing agent, school physicians, school counselors and school psychologists. The board designated its official banks and legal counsel, and it named the Skaneateles Press as its official district newspaper.

School lunch price increase

During the school board’s regular meeting on July 2, the BOE set school lunch prices for the upcoming school year at $2.55 for elementary and $2.75 for secondary. This is a 10-cent raise for elementary lunches and a 15-cent raise for secondary lunches.

The board also readopted all its policies in effect during the 2011-12 school year to continue in effect during the 2012-13 school year, including the School Code of Conduct and Discipline.

During the board’s regular meeting on July 2, which occurred once the reorganizational meeting was completed, the BOE set school lunch prices for the upcoming school year at $2.55 for elementary schools and $2.75 for secondary schools. This is a 10-cent raise for elementary lunches and a 15-cent raise for secondary lunches. The board also appointed coaches for fall, winter and spring sports and approved a bond

resolution, which was approved by voters in May, to spend up to $265,000 for two new school busses.

New BOE member Benjamin said she “really enjoyed” her first official meeting on the board. “You know, as a teacher meetings like this used to be real drudgery, but this was most interesting. I’m really excited to be on the board,” she said with a smile.

The next regular school board meeting will be Tuesday, Aug. 21.
