"There will be a lot of work involved with that and we're also implementing full-day kindergarten," said Carbone.
She also noted that the Scotia-Glenville School District has done a lot to bring their special education students back to the district from other programs.
"Our special education kids can stay in the district with their families and with their friends and neighborhood kids and be part of the normal school type of setting," said Carbone.
Carbone added that the board of education wants to thank Smith for her years of dedication to her position as president of the Scotia-Glenville School District's board of education.
"It was a real privilege for me to be president of the board of education for five years and I'm really proud of all that we accomplished during my time as president," said Smith.
"It wasn't always easy but I felt that we worked together as a board and administration to do what was best for our students," said Smith, who noted the main reason she stepped down was that it was time for someone else to have a leadership role on the board.
"As far as Pamela, I think she'll make an excellent president," said Smith.
She said that she continues to enjoy serving the board of education.
