Elementary school principal Ray VanCuyck said he is asking for an additional 20,000to start summer school for Elementary school students from July-August. VanCuyck hopes that the money could be used to hire an additional 12 teachers, bringing the total summer teaching staff to 14. VanCuyck said around 10 students would receive remedial assistance brought on by the tougher state standards. The program could handle up to 14 students. This is just an idea that is being taken into consideration. Final word on the program would come in April when the school budget process nears its final stages. The principal of the high school Paul Ahrens said that the upcoming summer school would be the last conjunction with Trumansburg. Ahrens said joining other Seneca County schools would provide the students with more opportunities and a wider schedule. Part of the summer school program would be a review on regents examinations. The only concern is transportation costs.
