Reminder: ConVal Community Forum Coming March 6

The ConVal School Board wishes to remind residents of the 9 district towns of the upcoming interactive community forum the board and district administration are hosting in-person and online.

The forum will take place Monday, March 6, from 6-8 p.m. at the Lucy Hurlin Theater at ConVal High School, and will also be accessible via live stream.

The forum will feature four presentations highlighting different aspects of the budget development process and will detail the budget figures that are most consequential for the community to know. The presentations will include a layman’s view of the budget, an explanation of the budget process, an overview of significant budget drivers, and highlight the goals and initiatives of the proposed budget and detail how property taxes are impacted by the School Budget.  

Throughout the evening, there will be opportunities for the in-person and online audiences to ask questions. Each question will be answered by the presenter or by a member of the School Board or Administration. Attendees will also have an opportunity to ask questions on district-related topics other than the budget

The live stream will be done as a YouTube event that will be available as it happens, and a recording will be accessible after the event concludes. To view this forum via live stream at 6 p.m. on Monday, March 6, click here (https://www.youtube.com/c/ConValEvents) and select the “2023 March 6 Community Forum” video from the list of available videos.
