"Timing is everything and resources are necessary," Guilderland's assistant superintendent for business told the school board members who are enthusiastic about expanding the technology program.

The Guilderland school district has agreed to annual raises from 1 to 2 percent for two small units — nine administrators and seven technology workers.

Guilderland's  music supervisor credits teachers, parents and the community for the program's success as the high school was named a Grammy semi-finalist for the fifth year in a row.

Guilderland School Board members' backgrounds informed the recommendations they made for closing a $2.7 million budget gap for next year.

GUILDERLAND — Four Guilderland High School juniors, all males, were arrested Thursday by Guilderland Police on misdemeanor charges under a 2010 Albany County law making cyberbullying a crime.

What the high school principal described as "raunchy sexual comments" in a rap posted to YouTube has led to the suspension of four male students; police are deciding whether they will be arrested under a county cyberbullying law, currently being challenged in the state's top court.

 A student who killed his mother in 2001 planned to attack the high school, the cop now stationed at the school told the board last week during a presentation on safety. This was the first public mention of such an attack, surprising the board president.

The Guilderland school district will get a check as part of settlement money for several states paid by a Long Island tech company for double billing for software maintenance.

A 17-year-old was taken by ambulance to Albany Medical Center after being extricated from her car on Oct. 10; police say the car was T-boned by a school bus after the 17-year-old failed to yield the right-of-way.

Many aids and monitors work part-time for the school district just to get health insurance for their families, according to a Guilderland negotiator. For their next contract, the unit's president says, they will push for health benefits after retirement.
