Project 2021 is a district-wide capital project proposal that is in the early stages of development. For a brief overview, please see the West Onondaga County Journal coverage of the project by clicking HERE.|
At this time, the Board of Education and Community Advisory Committees are reviewing financial status reports, available capital reserve funds, and community voting timelines. The Board recently voted to establish November 14, 2017 as the vote date for the project. Before that date there is a great deal of work to be done! For example, administration and the architects have been meeting with students and teachers to gather their input on areas that should be addressed or considered in the project. These suggestions will be added to a draft list of priority items to be addressed in the proposed project. On April 3, the community will be invited to participate in a discussion about the upcoming budget and Project 2021. This will be one of a number of community forums that take place prior to the November 14 vote. The information generated from these forums will then be reviewed with our community advisory committees and with the board who will ultimately determine what will be included in the final design.
