Thank you, voters! The project passed and construction will begin during the summer of 2016. Check this page throughout the course of construction for additional updates.
The Cambridge Central School Board of Education and the CCS Building Committee are asking the residents of the district to consider a capital project to address some critical needs in the areas of:
Health and Safety
New Academic Library Media Centers for both the elementary and high schools.
Create high quality learning centers our students need to succeed
Exterior entrance and restrooms to allow for expanded hours of access and evening use of distance learning
Health and Safety:
Centralized office space and securing the elementary entrance.
Providing a secure elementary entrance
Providing direct parent access to the Nurse’s Office
Expansion of the Nurse’s Office to include a “sick room” and shower
An Emergency Situation:
The storm water pipe running 15 ft. below the locker rooms is broken in multiple places flooding the undersized elementary gym during heavy rains, making it unusable teaching or practice space. As a result, elementary PE classes have been moved to the auditorium all year.
The entire pipe must be excavated to repair the problem. This will require one of the elementary gym walls be torn down, to get the excavator on site, and the floors of both locker rooms be dug up.
In addition to the emergency repair, state aid will also cover several other deficiencies to be addressed:
The small gymnasium will be enlarged to full court size, allowing it to be used more effectively for classes, practice, and competition;
A small set of bleachers, for students and visitors, will be installed in the elementary gym;
Elementary PE storage will all be added as a benefit of this repair project;
The boys and girls locker rooms will be redone,
Proposed Project Total Cost:
Smarter Schools program (-$914,980)
79.5% State Aid(-$7,811,571)
Approximate Cost to District Taxpayers:
$2,014,304 (over 15 years)
