    Pittsford Community Collaboration Task Force releases report

    Ad Hoc volunteer group identifies collaborative opportunities, makes recommendations

    The Pittsford Collaborative Leadership Team has released a report by the Pittsford Community Collaboration (PCC) Task Force identifying current collaborative efforts and recommending future opportunities for collaboration among Pittsford’s town, school district and village.  Members of the Task Force are being thanked for their efforts by the Town of Pittsford, Pittsford Central School District and the Village of Pittsford at the Board of Education meeting on Monday, July 15 at 7 p.m. The meeting will be held at Barker Road Middle School, 75 Barker Road.  

    The PCC Task Force report includes a variety of recommendations for further collaborative opportunities between the Town, School District and Village. Additional information is available in the related files at the bottom of this page. 

    The members of the Pittsford Collaborative Leadership Team at the time – former Pittsford Town Supervisor Bill Carpenter, former Pittsford Central School District Superintendent Mary Alice Price and Pittsford Village Mayor Bob Corby – charged the PCC Task Force with finding additional opportunities for collaboration between the three entities and were pleased with the level of effort and professionalism exhibited by the task force and the thoroughness of the report.

    “With so many current examples of collaboration, the Task Force members had to work diligently to find additional opportunities that were truly viable for our community and they did an excellent job” said Supervisor Zutes.

    Mayor Corby agreed. "The task force members volunteered a great deal of personal time, effort, and research.  The Leadership Team will carefully evaluate the report's recommendations to see if they can help each of us better achieve our respective missions” he said.

    “The report is very thorough and well organized,” added Superintendent Pero. “It will serve as a launching point for us to take our collaborative efforts to the next level.”

    The PCC Task Force was appointed in October, 2011 by the Pittsford Collaborative Leadership Team. Task Force members (see list below) were selected from a community-wide pool of applicants. Two representatives each from the town, village and district also sat on the committee as liaisons.
