The Coxsackie-Athens Central School District is proposing reconfiguration of our schools and a change to the way grades are grouped within the two elementary campuses. The scenario being discussed would have E.J. Arthur Elementary house Pre-K through 2nd grade and create an “Intermediate Academy” for grades 3-5 at Coxsackie Elementary.
A public comment session will take place on October 5th at 6:30pm in the cafeteria at Coxsackie Elementary (24 Sunset Blvd., Coxsackie). A brief introduction and update on the grade grouping topic will be followed by public comments. Comments will be limited to this topic. No action will be taken at the meeting. The event will be live streamed.
These proposed changes could have significant effects on our kids and our community.
Please attend this meeting or submit a letter to make your voice heard in regards to this proposal. We urge you to talk to your neighbors, your kids’ teachers and community to learn more.
In addition to the public forums, you may want to attend a School Board meeting. Meetings are usually on the third Thursday of each month. Check the district’s website for more information. You can also check out this article from the Daily Mail.
