Tonight the BOE turns its attention to the 2008-2009 budget with a first presentation, to be followed by several discussions. For those who enjoy this kind of thing, here's the tentative schedule of events:
2/11/08: Non-Instructional Areas of the Budget
2/25/08: Instructional Areas of the Budget
3/3/08: BOCES Budget
3/17/08: Staffing & Program
4/7/08: Revenues & Fund Balance
4/21/08: Adopt Budget
The first three meetings are at the MS/HS Library. The last three are at Dryden Elementary, Freeville Elementary, and McLean (Cassavant). The public vote on the budget and on three BOE seats is 5/20/08. The seats up include Chris Gibbons's, Karin LaMotte's, and mine.

I'll start campaigning for you right away. I like having a connection to the school board.

I'll pass on the schedule of budget discussions at the Town Board meeting Wednesday.

I don't know if I'll run again. I'm feeling very optimistic about the district for the first time in a long time (having a knowledgeable and activist interim sup't will do that), but the sup't search might quash that. I'll have to see.
