SCHENEVUS, NY – The Schenevus Central School District is looking at some very difficult financial times.

Based on estimates the school district is facing a nearly $400,000 deficit for the coming school year.

If something isn’t done soon, officials fear the district will not be able to sustain itself much longer.

On Tuesday the Schenevus Central school board voted to allow the district to begin discussions with the Worcester Central School District regarding tuitioning out students in grades 7 through 12 to the Worcester district.

Schenevus superintendent Theresa Carlin says the measure would save the district a significant amount of money.

“Rough calculations show us that if we were to tuition out our t through 12 students, we would save about a million dollars in costs. So we would take that money and enrich our elementary program, and start to build back our reserves and our fund balance.”

Now that the school district has the go ahead to discuss the option, they can begin to iron out the details of the plan.

The length of the plan will determine if a community vote is needed to pass it or not.

If a community vote is required school officials estimate that the vote will take place at the beginning of March.
