The next meeting of the Livingston Manor-Roscoe Merger Advisory Committee will be June 6. That meeting will include discussions of facilities and transportation, which were originally scheduled for the canceled May 16 meeting, as well as staffing, the topic originally scheduled for June 6.
The meeting will be held at Livingston Manor Central School, with a tour of the building planned at 5:15 p.m. The business portion of the meeting will begin at 6 p.m. Because of the additional topics to be covered, the meeting is expected to last about three hours. The meeting is open to the public, and will be available via Zoom.
The 18-member Advisory Committee is meeting regularly with merger consultants from Castallo & Silky LLC to help inform the study. Meeting locations alternate between the two districts. Because of the canceled meeting, the remaining meeting locations have changed, with the June 28 meeting covering finances to be held in Roscoe and the final meeting, a review of the draft report, to be July 25 in Livingston Manor.
The committee’s role is to provide information and feedback about aspects of the two districts that will be evaluated in the merger study, including staffing, finances, academic programs, transportation, and facilities. It is expected that the merger report will be presented to the boards of education at the end of the summer.
