Batavia City School District Kindergarten Registrations
Batavia City School District will hold kindergarten registration for the 2014-2015 school year from February 24 to March 7.
Children who will be 5 years old on or before December 1, 2014 will be eligible to begin kindergarten in September 2014.
Registration week will be held at Jackson Primary School between 8 a.m. and 4 p.m. The school is located at 411 Jackson Street with parking available in the front of the building.
No appoint is necessary. The entire registration process may last up to an hour, but will be shorter if your child is in the district’s Universal Pre-K program.
Please bring the following documents in order to register your child:
· Birth certificate
· Social Security Card
· Proof of Residency if your child is not in the Pre-K program
· Immunization Record
Without these documents you will not be able to register your child.
Parents of new first grade students are also asked to register their children in the same time frame with the same documents.
For any questions, contact Jackson Primary Principal Diane Bonarigo at 343-2480 ext. 4000.
N.Y. Farm Bureau Outlines Legislative Priorities
The New York Farm Bureau, representing the interests of all farmers, has presented its 2014 legislative priorities.
Some proposals already appear in the governor’s budget such as: raising the estate tax threshold to match the federal level and phasing out the article on surcharge electric bills.
Other proposals include: a refundable investment tax credit, extending the START UP NY program to farms to encourage entrepreneurs and young people to go into agriculture and a farm-to-market transportation program.
An additional proposal would require state agencies to buy 20 percent of their food from New York producers and processors.
