Wappinger School Board Postpones Fishkill Elementary Vote

FISHKILL, N.Y. -- The redistricting of Fishkill Elementary School will have to wait.

The Wappingers School Board decided to postpone its vote on changing the boundaries of the elementary school that would see students who live on Baxtertown Road, Round Hill, and Osbourne Hill Road attending Myers Corners Elementary instead.

"A community’s school boundary is a matter we take very seriously, and therefore it makes sense to take as much time as we can to provide information that is necessary in making these decisions," Superintendent Jose Curran said in a statement. "Additional clarification of questions and/or misperceptions that may exist will continue to be addressed. We look forward to continuing the conversation as we focus on our mission and core values."

Current Fishkill students would be grandfathered in, and students who have siblings at Fishkill would be determined on a case by case basis.
