Bronxville February Board of Education Meeting: Curriculum and Budget News PDF Print Email

By Staff

Feb. 27, 2019:  The Bronxville Board of Education meeting last night included a discussion by Mara Koetke, director of curriculum and instruction, about planning under way for the school’s upcoming assessment by the tri-state consortium. A team from the consortium came to Bronxville in February for a planning meeting. According to Koetke, the visiting team noted that the “district is doing important leading-edge work.” The team is particularly interested in how Bronxville measures student development in the key aspects of the Bronxville Promise – innovation, leadership, critical thinking, and engagement in the world. 

Assistant Superintendent Dan Carlin reported on budget planning for next year. Of note is that next year’s budget includes about $378,000 to upgrade the school’s public address system, which, Carlin explained, will be helpful for security. According to Carlin, this cost will be partially offset by reductions in salaries and benefits due to recent retirements. Carlin also provided an update on facilities. The new flood mitigation pumps are on schedule for an April/May installation. Steady progress is being made on Chambers Field, which, at the earliest, will be ready by Memorial Day. Finally, bids for other capital projects are expected in late March with the goal of doing construction over the summer.

In personnel news, Dr. Rachel Kelly reported that after twenty-three years of service, elementary school teacher Pam Kohlhoff is retiring. Dr. Katz, president of the Bronxville Teachers' Association for the past eleven years, noted that his term ends in March. Board member Thomas Curran recognized Dr. Katz for doing his job “in the finest way.”
