Why is this project needed?
Just like your home, our school facilities require attention and maintenance to keep them operating and efficient, while protecting our investment. As you already know, planned maintenance is less costly and disruptive than having to make emergency repairs. Under the capital project, the district is eligible to receive up to 79.5% reimbursement via state building aid, thus greatly reducing the balance to be covered via the tax levy.
What is the project timetable?
The vote will be held on March 27, 2018, and should it pass the project will be presented to the State Education Department (SED) approximately November 2018. The approval process can take one year. (SED has changed the procedure since our last project). Once approved by SED, construction would begin in the summer of 2020.
