School Merger Update

School Merger Update

November 14, 2013

School officials from Alfred-Almond Central, Arkport Central and Canaseraga Central met Tuesday night, and talked about the recent merger feasibility study results that were presented at Arkport Central on October 16.

Alfred Almond School Board President Earl Pierce and Arkport Central School Board President Steve Hoyt both reported that representatives from the three schools agreed that there was nothing in the merger feasibility study to make them want to put a stop to the process. According to Pierce, if there is a merger, it would be a three way merger. The Alfred-Almond School Board president says that the three school boards and voters in all three districts would have to give their approval to a three way merger, if the process reaches that point
