The Oysterponds Board of Education will hold its final community forum to give residents a chance to weigh in on the district’s secondary school contract at 11:30 a.m. today.

This is the fourth roundtable discussion the district has held since January.

In April, the district is expected to announce whether it will continue to send its junior and senior high school students to Greenport next year or seek an arrangement with another local district. New Suffolk, the only other North Fork district in a similar situation, sends its older students to Southold High School.

Board president Deborah Dumont said Oysterponds students enrolled at Greenport schools will be allowed to continue their education there even if the board approves a contract with a different district. In 2009, the board agreed to give parents a choice if the district decided to change high schools.
