A community forum on the Peekskill City School District 2013-2014 budget will be held on Saturday, March 9, in the cafeteria at Peekskill Middle School, from 9:00 a.m. to 12:00 p.m. PCSD Principals and Central Office Administrators will be present at the meeting. Community members are encouraged to attend.
“The purpose of the forum is to discuss the upcoming budget with the community and to get input and ideas from our residents on how we might cut costs as we move forward in the budget process while still providing exceptional service to our students,” said Peekskill City School District Superintendent, Jim Willis.
