On January 25, 2012, more than 40 community members attended
Middleburgh Central School District’s District Update and
Community Conversation, held in the High School Auditorium at 7
Superintendent Michele Weaver presented a district update
that outlined the extent of the flood damage to school
properties and the recovery made to date, as well as the
economic realities facing the district and the solutions being
explore—including the application, with five other districts,
for a feasibility study grant to examine the potential benefits
of resource sharing or consolidation among the districts. The
full presentation is available here.

Following the district update, attendees broke
into small groups for a community conversation, facilitated by
members of the Capital Region BOCES communications staff. The
groups discussed ways the presentation had reassured them about
the future of the district, questions and concerns that remained
and their priorities for the district.
The comments from the small group discussions were recorded
by BOCES facilitators. A summary of comments has been compiled
into a report for community review.
All comments are included, unedited, as noted by
BOCES facilitators. [View Summary

The district has drawn community questions from the comment
report and is currently in the process of developing an FAQ to
address the questions to the best of our ability.
We greatly appreciate the community involvement and feedback
we received, and look forward to continuing the conversation at
