After holding 16 public meetings to discuss many aspects of pursuing a bond, the Locust Valley Board of Education held a public Bond Forum on October 19th at 7 p.m. in the MS/HS Mini-Theatre. At that Forum, the Board was presented with final lists of capital improvement projects that community groups recommended for bond funding.
At the October 26th Board of Education meeting at 8 p.m. in the MS/HS Mini-Theatre, the Board will make final decisions regarding bond funding for facility improvements which are needed for district schools including, Bayville Primary. Bayville Intermediate, Ann Mac Arthur Primary, Locust Valley Intermediate, Locust Valley Middle School and Locust Valley High School.
The proposals address health, safety and security concerns and requirements as well as important program enhancements.
Low interest rates, tax cap benefits, minimal school tax impact as well as limited capital project funding alternatives and facility improvement and program enhancement needs in schools constructed from almost 60 to almost 90 years ago, make this a critical time for the school district to consider bond funding.
All members of the Locust Valley Central School District are strongly encouraged to attend the Board of Education meeting on Wednesday, October 26th at 8 p.m. in the MS/HS Mini-Theater where the Board intends to make final determinations regarding bond funding.
