The Jamestown Public School Board voted to move forward with a reorganization plan for the district’s special-education unit at a special board meeting Thursday.
The plan would leave most services and personnel the same, but would cost Jamestown Public Schools about $80,000 more per year.
In the seventh special education redesign draft, officials presented a plan that would leave most services and personnel the same, but would cost Jamestown Public Schools about $80,000 more.
Jamestown, as well as Medina, Montpelier and Pingree-Buchanan school districts make up the Buffalo Valley Special Education unit. To cut costs and continue its level of service, BVSEU is considering partnering with the Dickey-LaMoure Special Education Unit, which consists of the Edgeley, Ellendale, Kulm, LaMoure and Litchville-Marion districts.
Energy Savings Group defended the $2.9 million Jamestown Public Schools spent on renovations to school buildings and facilities at the Jamestown Public School Board’s Building and Grounds Committee meeting Tuesday.
Some school board members had concerns about the partnership and questioned if the district should terminate its contract. The partnership, which the district officially began this year, would last for 15 years. Plans for the partnership began in 2001. ESG began construction of its improvements in 2006.

When our two daughters were growing up I think the worst time of the year was late July and early August. That was the time between the end of the summer parks programs and the beginning of school activities and school itself. The girls were often bored with summer and not having anything scheduled. I would often escape to the office leaving my wife to figure out what to do with the kids and I didn’t have an answer anyway! That time of year is here now for the parents of Jamestown Public School kids.
But, I have a great announcement for all of you. Jamestown Public Schools are ready to go and soon will be welcoming approximately 2200 students back for what promises to be a very interesting 2008-09 school year. And we are ready.
