These “Coffee Hours” will be held at the Chancellor Livingston Elementary in Room 124 (first classroom to the right of the greeter’s desk on that side of the hallway) from 9:00 to 10:00 am, and at the Bulkeley Middle School/Rhinebeck High School Library from 7:00 to 8:00 pm.


At the Board meeting on Tuesday, February 27th, members of the Board of Education expanded the March 6 “Coffee with the Board” times to be more accessible to staff members interested in discussing 2018-19 budget development with them. In addition to the 9:00 am “Board Coffee” at CLS (Room 124) and the 7:00 pm Board Coffee at the BMS/RHS Library, Board members also will be available at the BMS cafeteria from 7:15 am – 8:00 am and in Room 124 at CLS from 8:15 – 9:00 am.  Staff members also are welcome to attend the 9:00 am and/or the 7:00 pm "Board Coffees," depending on their schedules and availability.


For the focus of the March 6th “Board Coffee,” the Board members are interested in speaking with members of the community about the District’s programs and services within the context of the 2018-19 school budget under development. This is an opportunity to learn from each other and to think together about the most effective and efficient ways of providing the resources needed to maintain the quality of education provided by the school district to its students.  Please attend and participate in the conversation about the best use of limited resources. 


The Rhinebeck Central School Board of Education “coffee hours” are held several times each year, both in the morning and in the evening in order to accommodate the busy schedules of our community members These informal opportunities for discussion with Board of Education members are open to parents, students, and other members of the community. Several members of the Board of Education will attend each of the two “coffee hours” on a given day to meet with their constituents and to hear and discuss the public’s ideas and thoughts about the District’s schools, programs, and services in a casual, relaxed setting over coffee, tea, and light refreshments.
