Information regarding an incident outside of school
A Schoharie High School student was escorted from
school the morning of Sept. 17 by the New York State Police regarding a
threat made outside of school. At no time were students or staff at
risk, and the school remains calm and safe. The incident also presents a
teachable moment about the responsible use of social media.
Why we need to pay attention to our kids' social
Just when you think you have a handle on all the
social media sites your child could possibly frequent, a new one crosses
your radar. What are the dangers, and what can a parent/guardian do?

The NYS Property Tax Freeze Credit and you
When New York passed its state budget, it enacted
a property tax freeze credit for homeowners. The credit will be
implemented as rebate checks for STAR-eligible homeowners based on
property taxes levied by school districts and municipalities (village,
town, county, library, etc.) that are subject to the property tax levy
If a school district’s adopted tax levy is under the
cap, as Schoharie Central’s is, homeowners will receive a rebate for the
increase in their school taxes for the 2014-15 year.
I decided to hop on the bus to Albany recently to learn a Career and
Technical Education subject with my SCS High School friends.
