YES, IT IS TIME TO MERGE THE SCHOOLS. WE CAN NOT AFFORD TO PAY FOR ALL THESE ADMIN PEOPLE THAT MAKE $100,000+ FOR ONLY WORKING 9-10 MONTHS A YEAR!

Cruisin, I did live in the city and my graduating class was 478. I have no problem with small schools all 3 of my children graduated from Silver Creek. I love the small communities. I support the school more than I do the Village itself however, times are different then they where 20 to 30 years ago. Cost continue to increase and yet cost of living does not keep pace. We have way to many schools in the county and way to many administrators. In Erie PA they have 15 schools and one superintendent. We need to start to think about consolidation if we want these small villages and schools to remain. If not they will some day all fold and we will be shipping our children 30 miles away for an education.

So what? My graduating class in the 1970s at Forestville was 55. If you don't like living in a rural setting, then move to the city.

How is that going to happen when you have 50-100 people in Forestville that can't bear the thought of there being no village, and I would assume, no Forestville HS either.

They absolutely should combine. The school's backyard is Forestville Ave.. go figure. They are a 5 minute drive apart. Just more NYS educational waste. Wouldn't want a handful of administrators losing their 100K/year jobs managing 200 students.

This a great. Maybe now the 2 schools can look at combining the educational part. When one school has less than 50 graduating and the other barely has 100 it is time to consolidate. What a great way to get the ball rolling by using the sports programs to show it can work. Cudo's to both directors.
