GUILDERLAND — A controversial consultant’s report led to a collegial forum on Nov. 19 as 74 district residents participated in the first summit on the future of Guilderland schools.

“We’re kind of running out of ideas for how we close revenue gaps,” Superintendent Marie Wiles told the crowd, assembled at the new Tech Valley High School on the southeast edge of the district. “That’s, frankly, why we’re here,” she said.

“We want to ask the question that is the elephant in the room,” Wiles went on.
