    Project Rationale 

     
    The North Tonawanda City School District is embarking on a $39.85 million capital project for four primary reasons.
     
    First: The district qualifies for Qualified Zone Academy Bonds
    QZAB is a federal tax credit bond used as a source of financing the rehabilitation of a public school facility’s classroom space.You will find more information about the QZAB funding throughout these web pages and on the FAQs page.
     
    Second: Large Scale Repairs and Maintenance are needed
    A number of items that were identified in the Five Year Building Condition Survey need to be addressed in the near future. You will see that there are repairs and maintenance scheduled.
     
    Third: Configuring for Optimal Grade Level Efficiency
    This project 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. The high school will continue to house grades 9-12. The former Meadow Elementary will become the new Middle School for grades 7-8. The former Middle School will become the Intermediate School for grades 4, 5 and 6. Spruce, Ohio and Drake will house grades K-3.

    Fourth: Enhance athletic fields for our students and community to use
       At the high school complex the project includes:
    • Construct new multi-sport stadium that includes turf, lighting, bleachers, press box, concession stand and ticket booth.
    • Construct six new tennis courts
    • Construct/reconfigure four natural grass sports fields

       At the new Intermediate School for Grade 4-5-6 (the former Middle School):

    • Provide asphalt track around the existing natural grass field
    • Provide new varsity baseball field
    • Provide new junior varsity baseball field
