Letter from the Superintendent

Scott Taylor

We recently passed the half-year point of the school year and celebrated (mostly at the Elementary School) the 100th day of school. Soon the cold and dark mornings give way to earlier sunrises and milder temperatures. It is also a time when we begin the final stages of the 2018 voter-approved Capital Project work.

As you may recall in December 2018, North Collins residents approved a Capital Project. The focus of the Capital Project is improvements to Health/Safety, Facilities Infrastructure Improvements, Educational Space Improvements and Site Improvements. We have since been in the Design, Submittal and most recently the Approval phase from the New York State Education Department. The construction will hopefully begin in late spring of 2020 (light construction), summer of 2020 (heavy construction) and last through the spring of 2021 (light construction). The project continues to support our mission of providing a “safe and supportive learning environment that strives to maximize educational opportunities for all students.”

A school district’s facilities are a reflection of its educational program, protects our community’s investment and improves the learning environment for our students; we thank you for your support.

We are also in the midst of formulating our 2020-2021 school district budget. The preliminary budget proposal was presented at the February board meeting and we will continue to further refine the projected expenditures and estimated revenues. Our goal is always to adopt a budget that balances the needs of the students we serve and garners support from the community. As with all of our decisions, we keep the District Mission Statement in mind:

The North Collins Central School District is a safe and supportive learning environment that strives to maximize educational opportunities for all students, faculty, staff, and community members. We nurture responsibility, creativity, energy, and open-mindedness to empower successful contributors to a global society.

As we continue into 2020, we acknowledge the significant work accomplished by our students, faculty, staff and BOE members, but also understand the work that lies ahead.  As always feel free to stop in, send an email staylor@northcollinscsd.org or give me a call at 337-0101 ext. 1301. Thank you again for your support, and I hope to see you along the way.
