ROCKLAND — The second meeting of the Livingston Manor and Roscoe Central School Districts’ merger study will take place on March 1. Residents from both school districts are invited to the LMCS Auditorium for the 6 p.m. meeting.
The meeting will kick off the merger study process and introduce the members of the joint Advisory Committee. For those unable to attend in person, a zoom webinar with a live chat for questions will also be available.
In total, there are 18 members on the Advisory Committee that will meet monthly with the merger consultants. The meetings will alternate between the two school districts throughout the spring. The committee is balanced to include an equal number of community members, students and district employees from each district.
Student: Jillian Carlsen.
Community members: Nancy Barnhart, Danielle Decker-Stone, Allen O’Keefe and Nicole Park.
District employees: Robert Gould (support staff), Jessica Mall and Laurie Valentine (teachers), Lauren Marrero (administrator).
Student: Jacqueline Lambe.
Community members: Justin Murphy, Lilly Constant, George Kinne and Laurie Kuehn.
District employees: Brandie Rogers (support staff), Melissa Ebeling and Donna Greenthal (teachers), Robin Francisco (administrator).
The study is a required first step any time districts are considering a merger. It is expected that the Manor-Roscoe study will be completed this summer and shared with the Boards of Education and the community this fall to determine if a merger proposal should be put to a public vote.
Details about the process will be shared at Tuesday’s meeting, which will include a presentation by a representative of the state Education Department. All are invited to attend in person or virtually. More information is at https://www.roscoe.k12.ny.us/page/merger-study and https://www.lmcs.k12.ny.us/domain/1136
