During the school board meeting on February 16, 2017, the respective Superintendents for the Canaseraga and Arkport schools formally introduced the idea of combining our athletic programs. Over numerous years, we have been able to bring athletes together to provide opportunities and to “save” teams from not being offered.
The Superintendents and Athletic Directors will be working together over the coming weeks to develop a formal plan to combine our programs. A plan will be presented to each school board on March 22 (Arkport) and March 23 (Canaseraga).
A formal recommendation will then be presented during each school board meeting held at the beginning of April – Canaseraga’s meeting will be held on April 6, 2017.
As the Superintendents and Athletic Directors begin their work, we would like to hear your thoughts / questions / comments / concerns. Your feedback can be provided by using the following survey link:

This picture attempts to represent the options that exist for the Canaseraga Central School. A question was asked at the 02/16/17 board meeting about the potential options that exist. While this is a VERY simplistic representation of the options before us, it does give a look at the options. There are also many nuances related to each option that cannot be represented in a simple picture.
The Canaseraga Central School District believes that the primary purpose of an effective school is teaching for learning. We believe that our responsibility is to provide all students with an opportunity to learn, achieve, and become responsible, productive members of society.
