The approval extends the existing contract with Mile Square Transportation, with a 1.8 percent increase based on the regional consumer price index.

The school district is seeking new bids for bus transportation for the new school year beginning in September after the board rejected all bids during its June 19 meeting

In other action Wednesday, the board:

  • Accepted the resignation of Frederick W. Hutchinson as director of reading and gifted, effective June 30. Hutchinson has been appointed principal of Peekskill High School, effective July 1. A new director of reading and gifted is being sought.
  • Appointed high school teacher James Senning to assist during the summer with the Annual Professional Performance Review process for teachers and principals. Several other teachers were appointed during the June 19 board meeting.

The board’s next scheduled meeting is its annual reorganization session, July 3, at a time to be announced.
