FREDONIA – Fredonia School Board President Michael Bobseine called a special meeting Tuesday evening in the high school library to look at goals and objectives for the coming year and to review issues from the past year.
Board members said they would like to hear more about programs for students that could be offered through the Chautauqua-Erie Board of Cooperative Educational Services system.
They acknowledged that many districts have had to eliminate classes because of declining enrollment or shrinking financial aid and that BOCES may be able to help with offering courses to students from the participating districts. It was also agreed that Fredonia may have some course offerings that could be shared.
Superintendent Paul DiFonzo agreed to contact BOCES Superintendent David O’Rourke to ask him about shared class offerings and ideas for other classes.
School Board members said they would be willing to attend a meeting with BOCES if O’Rourke would like them to be involved.
Board members also talked about seating arrangements and a possible change in the meeting location to make the meetings easier for the public to hear.
Bobseine said he will consider changes, and DiFonzo said he will check into the availability of other sites for board meetings.
