1745 Relations with Senior Citizens

The Board of Education will consider school-related programs for senior citizens in accordance with Education Law and/or Regulations of the Commissioner of Education. Such programs include special use of school buses, school lunches and partial tax exemptions.

The Board encourages learning and participation in school events as a life-long process. To that end, the Board supports the efforts of all residents, and especially our senior citizens, to take part in school activities. Accordingly, all residents age 55 or older are eligible to attend School District activities without charge.
