Facility Plans Update

BY MR HURLEY

The Board of Education has approved the submission of facility plans to the State Department of Education for review. The plans were revised from the facility plan proposed in the 2018 referendum. The new plans cut nearly $12 million dollars of projects from the original proposal. Due to rising costs including increased tariffs, the net reduction is $7.6 million making the local share of the proposed $45 million dollar project approximately $35 million. The DOE has 90 days to review plans. When the plans are approved by the DOE, the Board will decide whether or not to go forward with a second referendum. A summary of the new plans is linked here.
