Adoption of Agenda
Trustee Karis-Nix proposed to adopt the agenda. President Schottenfeld seconds.
Schodack Central School District Superintendent Bob Horan and Board of Education
Board Member Paul Puccio shared that they would like to conduct a feasibility study
with the Castleton Public Library that would look into collaborating resources at the
middle school to allow both libraries to possibly operate as one library together. There
is grant money available that could give up to $600,000 to repurpose the Middle School.
The grant applications will probably be due in early summer. A portion of the funding
could go back to the Castleton Public Library. All questions should be addressed to Mr.
Horan and Mr. Puccio. They will email the feasibility study outline to us. Currently, they
are just looking for a financial commitment from the library to conduct the study. To see
another school district that has collaborated similarly check out the Red Jacket School
District as a model.
