Reminder: Capital Project Vote Tomorrow, Dec. 10!REMINDER: LaFAYETTE CENTRAL SCHOOL DISTRICT CAPITAL PROJECT VOTE TO BE HELD ON THURSDAY
LaFayette Central School District residents will be voting on a proposed $8.6 million capital project on Thursday, Dec. 10 from 1 - 9 p.m. at the junior/senior high school. Residents may also vote via absentee ballot in lieu of an in-person vote. The project will have no additional tax impact for residents.
“Many in the district community may be asking ‘Why now?’ - Our District began the capital project planning process in February 2020,” explains Superintendent Jeremy Belfield. “Despite all that we have withstood since March with COVID-19, we must move forward with the education of tomorrow for our students, while preserving the community’s previous investments in our facilities. This project furthers our commitment to our district’s core beliefs of safe and secure learning environments, supportive and rigorous learning environment, an institution of learning for all, and embracing creativity and innovation.”
The capital project will address a wide variety of infrastructure needs with high priority needs pinpointed to maintain safe and secure learning environments and a community resource for students and families. Keeping student/staff health and safety in mind, and with an eye toward innovation, the scope of the project has three primary goals:
- Improving air quality to create healthier learning environments
- Upgrade facility infrastructure to ensure safety, health and security
- Educational program enhancements (including STEM programming spaces and renovating the Grimshaw Library Media Center)
