Dear Parents, Guardians, andCommunityMembers,
The 2014-15 school year has come to a close. It has been a fantastic yearwithmany accomplishments andgoals beingmet.
This year I am proud to say that we saw successful passage of a $12.7million capital improvement project, recognition of
theWolcott Street School as a National School of Character, and Le Roy Jr./Sr. High School named to the 5thAnnual AP
Honor Roll. LeRoywas named to theBest Communities forMusic Education for the 8th year in a row andwe had numer-
ous sectional championships, includingour football, cheerleading, and indoor track teams. Several individual studentswere
recognized for their efforts in the classroom, on the stage andon the playingfield. In addition,we celebratedwith92 seniors
as they proudly became the “GraduatingClass of 2015.” It has been a great year!
On thebusiness sideof things, thedistrict hasfinally received stateaid support equivalent to the2008-09 school year, helping
us toclose thegapbetweengrowingexpenses and revenues, andallowingus to reduce taxes for thecoming school year. Two
contractshave reachedpositive settlements aswell. In regards to thecontractual settlements,wearepleased toannounce that
the school instructional day has been expanded. Thiswill cause for a slight change in our school day starting onSeptember
2, 2015.
The school day for theelementary schoolwill run from
8:45 -3:15,
while the secondary school hourswill be from
This change allows for auniform school dayof six andonehalf hours for all students,which is quite typical formost schools
in the region.While the time changesmay seem slight, the additionalminuteswill allowus toprovide the equivalent of close
to seven additional days of instructional time over the course of the year.
Please plan ahead!!
