School District Merger Study

Livingston Manor Central School District

and

Roscoe Central School District

The Roscoe and Livingston Manor central school districts are conducting a merger study in 2022. The two districts have received state funding to help pay for the study. This study is a required first step any time two or more districts are considering a merger. Once the study is completed, it will be presented to the Boards of Education for their review and shared with the community. If the boards decide the process should move forward after reviewing the study, the merger can go to a public vote.
