2020 is the 90th anniversary of Amherst Central High School. Over the last couple of months, the Amherst Central Alumni Foundation shared a variety images from the Tower for each decade on Facebook to celebrate the history of the school. We are posting links to each decade’s photo album just in case you missed them there. You don’t have to be a Facebook user to view them. Stay tuned for details on our All-Year Reunion in 2021.
Usually, at this time of the year, the ACAF (Amherst Central Alumni Foundation, Inc.) would be making its final preparations for our annual Alumni Golf Classic at the end of July. As with most events in the region, our golf classic was cancelled due to the coronavirus pandemic.
Here is the video of Amherst Central High School’s 88th Commencement. The Amherst Central School District and the staff and administration at the high school did an incredible job of making sure the Class of 2020 was honored for its achievements during this unprecedented time in school’s history.
As an alumni of Amherst Central School District, you are aware of what a great education you received. I am sure you can still recall some great friends, outstanding teachers and amazing opportunities in arts, sports, music and more.
If you are a resident of the ACSD you’ve already committed to providing your children, and perhaps your grandchildren, with the same quality education you had. In order to maintain this excellent education, we would like you to consider a “YES” vote to the 2010-2021 budget, and to cast your vote to elect two new Board members.
The 2020-2021 budget highlights:
All programs, athletics and extra curriculars remain.
Budget supports the whole child
The proposed levy is tax cap compliant
The projected tax rate increase is 1.7%
A passed budget allows continued community usage of our buildings and facilities
The challenges presented by the COVID-19 pandemic have created uncertainties of future state funding. Now, more than ever, the Amherst School District needs the support of it’s alumni and community.
In order to make an informed decision, the following information is available in one central location on the Amherst Central Schools website:
