Guilderland Central School District

Standing six rows deep, most of the students at Guilderland High School took part in Wednesday’s national walkout, exactly one month after the Valentine’s Day shooting in Parkland, Florida. 

Four posts are open on Guilderland’s board of education, and almost all members who are up for re-election are unsure if they will run.

Sanari Ismail of Farnsworth Middle School thinks that students should be able to feel safe at school. The national walkout was set to be exactly one month from the date of the Feb. 14 shooting at Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School in Parkland, Florida, where 17 people died.

Elementary student Riley Better has a key part in “The Music Man” and, says the show’s director, he is “a model for the high school kids; he’s in it to work.”

Ellen Taussig

Ellen Taussig, the new assistant superintendent of Buildings and Grounds for the Guilderland schools, says she’s a big sports fan and will enjoy rooting for the Dutchmen.

Timothy Horan

GUILDERLAND — A lawsuit brought last May in federal court against Timothy Horan — a retired teacher turned school board member — and the Guilderland School District has been settled with a payment of $117,500, court documents show.

Flickering lights were the first sign that something was wrong, said Superintendent Marie Wiles.

While security measures in Guilderland schools are extensive, Assistant Superintendent Neil Sanders says, “The majority of our efforts focus on building a stronger school community through communication, respect, and responsibility,”

Guilderland’s $100.7 million school budget proposal closes a $1.6 million gap partly by using $930,000 from the district’s fund balance.

The New York State Department of Transportation has taken steps to protect pedestrians at the intersection of State Route 146 and School Road.
