Genesee Valley School: Voters head to the polls March 29

Information from school district:
On March 29, 2016 the Genesee Valley Central School District is bringing a capital project to vote. With a proud history of providing our students a premium educational experience paired with a pressing demand to maintain facility and program standards, this project has been shaped to address those needs. Past success in meeting the needs of our children is a direct result of thoughtful and measured improvements. In order to continue on a successful path and protect past investments we’ve carefully examined the needs of a 21st century student. Plus a recently completed building condition survey identified building infrastructure upgrades needed to maintain our facilities over the long term.
These two factors were able to provide us a clear focus of priority work to present within the project. In the case of our facility needs, replacing items that have succumbed to normal wear and tear such as roofs and parking lots have been defined in the scope of work. Other projects are program related such as upgrades to technology infrastructure and the repurposing of an existing room to a Science, Technology, Engineering, Arts, and Math (STEAM) learning space.
The capital project will cost $15.6M and through much preparation there is already a plan set in place to pay for this project. The result is that this project will require NO ADDITIONAL TAXES to the taxpayers in our district. There
This project will have no additional tax impact on residents and businesses.
