Scotia-Glenville adheres to the Freedom of Information and Open Meetings laws

The Freedom of Information Law, effective January 1, 1978, reaffirms your right to know how your government operates. It provides rights of access to records reflective of governmental decisions and policies that affect the lives of every New Yorker. Here's an easy-to-read brochure about the laws from the Committee on Open Government. Find out more about Scotia-Glenville's procedures involving the laws.


February 10, 2012

In accordance with recent changes to the state Open Meetings Law, supplemental files to Board of Education meeting agendas will be posted in advance of each meeting. They will be accessible by clicking on the highlighted links on the posted agendas.

The revisions to the Open Meetings Law address two types of records that are “scheduled to be the subject of a discussion” during an open meeting. :

Those that are required to be made available pursuant to the Freedom of Information Law; and

Proposed resolutions, law, rules, regulations, policies or amendments thereto.

When either type of document is scheduled to be discussed during an open meeting, the law requires that they be made available to the public, to the extent practicable, either prior to or at the meeting. A school district or government body may either make copies available at the meeting for a fee, typically 25 cents per page, or may post them on the agency's maintained website prior to the meeting.

The Scotia-Glenville Central School District agrees with the Committee on Open Government that "through the disclosure of records scheduled to be discussed during open meetings, the public can gain the ability to better understand and appreciate the issues faced by government."

Here is a link about the changes:

Board of Education adopts goals for the 2015-16 school year

The Board of Education of the Scotia-Glenville Central School District will endeavor to:

1. Continue to establish and implement a prioritized schedule of revisions and continuously review board policies with the goal of reviewing all policies every five years.

2. Continue to evaluate and implement methodologies to increase public participation and community input into the district’s processes. Methodologies could include, but are not limited to, holding forums, conducting surveys, and other strategies as determined by the Board of Education.

3. Coordinate with administrative staff in the development of long-term goals.

4. Work cooperatively with district leadership, employees, district students, and the community to consider strategies and opportunities to reduce district costs, including the evaluation of the school structure and potential partnerships.

5. Work cooperatively with district leadership to explore opportunities to integrate the CCLS in ways that inform the Scotia-Glenville community about what the CCLS encompass and their development.

6. Participate in state and federal level activities aimed towards revision of school funding strategies and formulas.
