The Penn Yan Central School District Board of Education and administration will host its first community budget forum at 6:30 p.m. Tuesday,?Feb. 15 in the Academy Media Center.

Interim Superintendent Tom Cox and Assistant Superintendent for Business Doug Tomandl will facilitate the forum. Information will be provided on the process of developing a school budget, the status of this year’s budget development and the impact of the state budget on Penn Yan.

Community members will have an opportunity for input and questions.

Additional forums will be held in March. The intent is to hold forums at different times and at locations other than the school in an effort to increase the potential for community members to participate.

"New York State communities are facing some unprecedented decisions this year in light of a very difficult financial environment. Please join this critical conversation about your school district," writes Cox in a press release from the school district.
