  • WALWORTH The Community Relations Committee of the Gananda Board of Education invites the community to engage with committee members at its second in a series of Open Forums on Wednesday, Dec. 11. This is an opportunity for Gananda residents to sit down with their board members and discuss school-related issues important to them in a casual setting.
    Were very pleased at the number of community members that attended our first Open Forum in November; parents of students district wide who are active in a variety of programs made for great conversation, says Lisa Finnegan, President of the Gananda Board of Education. Its obvious we have a supportive, yet very concerned community who is looking to help continue Ganandas long-term mission. Several community members left the meeting with an action plan!
    In this meeting, board members will be on-hand to discuss budget-related topics including the cost of arts, athletics, and Physical Education programming. They also plan to share their take-aways from a recent due diligence presentation on the district merger process. Interested participants may additionally submit their own questions for the Boards consideration in advance to Leslie Ferrante, District Clerk, at lferrante@gananda.org.
    We are looking forward to our December forum and hope to see an even greater turnout all community members are welcome to attend, says Mrs. Finnegan.
    The Open Forum will begin at 7 p.m. in the Ruben A. Cirillo High School Library, 3195 Wiedrick Road, Walworth.
