The East Greenbush Central School District has scheduled virtual community forums on Wednesday, August 5 (6:30-8:00 p.m.) and Thursday, August 13 (6:30-8:00 p.m.) to discuss the reopening of schools. Both events will be live streamed and provide an opportunity for members from the school community to provide feedback regarding the preliminary reopening plan.

  • Molly McGrath, Director of Pupil Personnel Services
  • Michael Harkin, Principal of Columbia High School
  • Jill Barker, Principal of Howard L. Goff Middle School
