The cost to the district would be an additional full-time teacher needed to teach the classes formally taught by the coordinators with a reallocation of resources in support of the position in the amount of $36,000. The remainder of the cost would be new district monies.
School administrators will meet with the VTA at a later date and Langevin will present the proposal to the Voorheesville Board of Education at its January meeting for a vote. The district voters must then either approve it or not during the school budget vote next year. Langevin said she hopes to have curriculum coordinators in place by school year 2008-09.
