The Wheatland-Chili Central School District lies nestled among the small towns and farmland of western Monroe County. The historic Village of Scottsville, where sidewalks link homes with neighboring businesses, is the largest population center. While the 6,000 residents of the district enjoy the lifestyle of small-town America, they live only 10 minutes from downtown Rochester, the Rochester International Airport, nationally recognized colleges and universities and one of the largest shopping complexes in the area. The District is comprised of portions of the towns of Wheatland, Chili, and Brighton in Monroe County and Caledonia in Livingston County. The district is a diverse social economic community. Many residents commute to the Rochester area for employment with companies such as Eastman Kodak, Xerox, Bausch & Lomb and universities such as University of Rochester and Rochester Institute of Technology. Commercial and industrial properties in the northern section of the district add to the property tax base.
Community participation in the life of the schools is regularly sought by the Board of Education and the administration. Residents are encouraged to be active volunteers, both in the schools and on advisory committees, music and athletic booster clubs and parent associations. Wheatland-Chili takes pride in the fact that the size and character of the district makes a true sense of community possible.
