The Meaning Behind the Emblem
The open book represents the church and the school, both of which have played a large part in the development of the town;
The five lines, the Five Corners where the first settlement was located; the bow and arrow, the Indian settlement north of the village, traces of which may still be seen;
The beaver at the base of the shield, the hill, valley and creek, and the various organizations of the town who have adopted that word for a part of their name;
The stars across the base, the thirteen stars in the flag at the time of the founding of the Town in 1791.
Until further notice the Board of Education will be conducting their meetings remotely. In addition, as the current crisis continues to change rapidly the Board has found it necessary to maintain a flexible meeting schedule. Although the Board's goal is to meet as noted on the school calendar, it is likely there will be changes to this schedule. Alternate meeting dates will be noted on the District's home page, facebook page and notices placed at the Brookfield General Store and the Brookfield Post Office.
All Board of Education meetings are live Streamed and can be viewed by clicking the following link:

Please be aware that the date of the 2020-2021 budget vote and BOE elections has been postponed by NYS until after June 1, 2020. We are awaiting further guidance in order to set a definite date.
We anticipate guidance from NYS in the near future regarding school closures. Once we receive this guidance we will determine the feasibility of certain year end activities and make plans accordingly. Like you student safety is our top priority.
We are all in this together. Please be safe.
