    On June 6, 2013 we held a Special Meeting of the Attica Central School District’s Board of Education for the purpose of receiving the Building Utilization Study from Dr. Howard S. Smith (click the link below for the full study).

    This study provided several options for the Attica Central School District's Board of Education for consideration.  At this time, no decision has been made with regard to the recommendations made in the study.  It is the Board of Education's intent to form a committee to review the options presented in the study.  This committee will be charged with the responsibility to provide a recommendation to the Board of Education at the conclusion of its review.  The Board will then decide if the recommendation will be adopted as presented or in some variation.

    The PowerPoint presentation from the June 6, 2013 meeting is also available by clicking the link below.
