A Message from Your Board of Education President – Cheryl McMahon - October 2015
The North Tonawanda Board of Education encourages you to take the opportunity to vote on our capital project to improve the quality of academics and athletics in North Tonawanda. The scope of this project is outlined on the capital project webpages.
Over the last six months, the board, district staff and community members have worked together to assemble this capital project to benefit the students and residents of North Tonawanda. This project will have a $0 tax impact. We believe that this capital project, when passed, will position the district to deliver the educational environment our children deserve to be better prepared for their post K-12 lives in the community.
The school district is engaging in a capital project for four primary reasons:
- First, the district qualifies for Qualified Zone Academy Bonds.
- Second, is a number of items that were identified in the Five-Year Building Condition Survey need to be addressed in the near future.
- Third, this gives us the opportunity to efficiently implement optimal grade level configurations where we can use staff in the most effective manner and offer students better opportunities to maximize their educational experiences.
- Fourth, we can enhance our athletic fields for our students and community to use.
If this is the first time you have become aware of the project, I encourage you to read through these webpages for an understanding of scope of the whole project. Please like us on our Facebook page for more information. If you have questions, please contact any school board member or the Superintendent’s office at 807-3500. Please also attend the Community Information Forum on October 14 at 7 p.m. at the North Tonawanda High School Alumni Center.
We have a number of exciting changes that we are confident will benefit students and taxpayers of the North Tonawanda City School District.
Your vote is important and we encourage you to let your voice be heard on October 27, 2015. Voting will take place at the North Tonawanda High School Alumni Center from noon - 9 p.m.
