The Board of Education will officially accept the budget vote and BOE election results during a Regular Meeting of the Board tomorrow evening, 5/22, at 6:30.  
I would like to extend special thanks to the following individuals:
  • District Clerk, Jennifer Green, for her role in coordination of this paramount district event, 
  • Mike Bastian for his service as business official and role in the development of the 2024-25 budget, 
  • The HCS administrative team for engaging in courageous conversations about purpose and programming specific to budget,
  • The faculty and staff of HCS... their service and impact in public education is woven into the narratives and success of each and every Bulldog (absolute dynamos!), and 
  • The HCS Board of Education... their leadership and support is vital to our work. 
It was an absolute wonderful evening at HCS - music, sectionals, chicken barbecue and unwavering support from our community!  On behalf of the Honeoye Central School District, many thanks for your partnership in advocacy for all HCS students. As always, please feel free to reach out with any questions or concerns about the information included in this communication, or otherwise.

Warmest regards,
E. Bridget Ashton
