Special Board Meeting Information
Posted on 05/23/2018

We encourage all members of the Fort Edward community to use our website to stay informed with information regarding the Board of Education and our Board of Education Meetings. For those interested in the agendas and minutes of our monthly meetings, please find our archive of records under our “Board of Education” tab on the website homepage (fortedward.org/board_of_education). Before each monthly meeting, we upload draft agendas that can be used to inform the public of the items we plan on discussing before the meeting occurs. These drafts will then be replaced with our official Board of Education minutes after each monthly meeting. We hope you find this information useful.

Our next special Board of Education meeting will be held on:

Ø  Thursday, May 24th at 6 pm in the School Auditorium

The district will hold this special meeting of the Fort Edward Board of Education to discuss plans and options regarding the 2018-19 school budget. As you may know, our initial proposed budget for the 2018-19 school year was defeated with 102 votes “yes” and 154 votes “no.” We would like to thank the community members who voted for our 2018-19 proposed school budget and we are pleased with the substantial turnout of voters in attendance, as we can use the feedback to accurately gauge what the community feels about the proposed budget.

As always, residents are welcome and encouraged to attend and provide feedback to the Board during the "Community Comments" portion of the meeting. I strongly encourage and sincerely hope that you will attend this meeting.  Thank you for your continued support of our students, school, and the Fort Edward Community.
