  • The $12.8 million capital project was approved by a vote of 739 to 207, a 78.2% to 21.8% margin.

Board member David Massaro was re-elected with 783 votes and board member Hal Talbot was re-elected with 772 votes.

The community will consider a $12.8 million capital project during community voting on Tuesday, May 18. Voting will be held from 7 .m. to 9 p.m. in the B-wing gymnasium at the high school.

There will be no impact on the tax levy because of this project. The district retires debt every year and this would replace that retiring debt.

This capital project includes new furnaces and roofs, replacing lead water lines and public address systems and a host of other upgrades at all six school buildings as well as other locations.
