This month the Board of Education meets both January 8th and January 15th. These are PUBLIC MEETINGS! Please join us at the Ford Administration Building on Tuesday, January 8th-TONIGHT! If you can’t make it, please attend the following Tuesday to listen, learn and speak up if you have any compliments or concerns! This is a very important time of the year when our school budget is discussed and decided by the PCSD Administration. Parents and Teachers need to be represented at these meetings to stay informed and help make a difference in the lives of all Peekskill students.
