The Eldred Central School District is proposing facilities upgrades and renovations at George Ross Mackenzie Elementary School and Eldred Junior Senior High School. On Tuesday, Dec. 6, 2022 voters will consider a “bond,” which is a loan paid back over time, like a home-improvement loan, to fund these improvements. It is important to note that this bond, if approved by voters, will NOT raise taxes. The proposed improvements will support and expand students’ advancement in literacy, math, science, multimedia and sports. The improvements also will inspire students’ analytical thinking and problem-solving skills while enhancing communication, collaboration and innovation.
The amount to be borrowed through the bond is $12.04 million. The total project cost will be about $13,295,000, with the remainder coming from school district funds. Voting on Dec. 6 will take place from 2 p.m. to 8 p.m.
You are invited to learn more and offer comments during a Public Hearing this Thursday, Sept. 29 at 6:30 p.m. at Eldred Junior Senior High School’s gymnasium.
