Board Holds Retreat to Learn About Responsibilies, Roles and Goal Setting

"This was a great opportunity for our board to collaborate, reflect on the roles and responsibilities of board members and start the goal setting process," Superintendent Michael Vanyo said. "We plan to continue our work in October with NYSSBA and develop goals that will set the framework for the 2018-19 school year."


Board of Education Passes Motion to Extend Cold War Tax Exemption

(Jan. 17, 2017) The Ichabod Crane CSD Board of Education unanimously approved a motion to extend a tax exemption to veterans of the Cold War who primarily reside in the district. Governor Cuomo signed legislation in August which allows school districts the option to grant Cold War Veterans an exemption from school taxes. Cold War Veterans were already eligible to receive an exemption from town & county taxes and now this legislation allows the schools to grant it as well. The formal resolution will be on the agenda for the Feb. 7 Board of Education meeting. LEARN MORE
