Newark School Board Sets Capital Project and School Board Votes for Feb. 8

The Newark School Board has scheduled a special vote for Feb. 8 on a $15.4 million capital improvement project that would include heating and cooling upgrades to the district’s five school buildings.

The Finger Lakes Times reports that voters will also choose a new member for the school board, to replace Shannon Nash, who died in October after being elected to a three-year term in May.

Deputy Superintendent of Business Ed Gnau said the capital project would involve the installation of air conditioning at Lincoln, Perkins and Kelley schools, as well as HVAC work at high school and college that could allow for the installation. air conditioning in the future. The district will use $2.9 million it expects to receive from the US bailout and $1,535,000 from capital reserves. The rest would come from state building aid, making the impact on taxpayers minimal.

The school board filing deadline set is Monday at 5:00 p.m. The vote is set for February 8 from 9 a.m. to 8 a.m. at the high school.
