Reporting on the views from Palmyra

On Thurs., 11/7 approximately one hundred residents of the Palmyra-Eagle School District attended the first of several meetings with a state-appointed board that is tasked with deciding by January 15 whether to dissolve the district. Nearly all of those who spoke were opposed to dissolution. Residents of the town and village of Eagle voted 74% in favor of dissolution in the recent advisory referendum, but 73% of the town and village of Palmyra residents voted to keep the district open. The School Board claims that after a referendum failed in April, keeping the schools open for the 2020-21 school year would cause a negative fund balance.
