ICC, Schodack schools consider merger

Oct 20, 2011 2:13 am
Emilia Teasdale reports in The Columbia Paper that the Ichabod Crane and Schodack School Boards met Tuesday, October 11, and will meet again at 6 p.m. October 24 at the Maple Hill School Library in Schodack to consider merging school districts to save money. The districts are conducting a "Functional Consolidation Study" and began outlining the possible timeline:
"To merge the two districts, both boards would have to agree, make formal motions and hold public hearings. They would hold a non-binding “straw vote” in their communities as well. If the straw vote is in favor of merger in both communities there would have to be a binding vote. In the time line presented to the board this week, a binding vote could be held as early as the fall of 2012. If voters approve a merger, consolidation could take place as soon as July 2013," Teasdale wrote.
