Central Square School District to hold Community Café to discuss proposed Capital Project

CENTRAL SQUARE – The Central Square School District has scheduled a Community Café, to discuss the proposed ‘no additional tax impact’ Capital Project, to be held in the Millard Hawk Primary School Auditorium on May 1, at 6 p.m.

CSSD Superintendent Thomas J. Colabufo and members of the Board of Education are pleased to invite community members to join them for this informal meeting and open discussion on the $40.8 million proposed Capital Project that will be voted on May 16.

Guests will have the opportunity to ask questions directly of the Superintendent, members of the Board of Education and King + King Architects.

The overall goal of the capital project is to address the most critical infrastructure issues found during the 2015 building condition survey, and further aims to address key student centered program/building needs.

“We have been working very hard to make sure that we can maximize our repairs, while remaining within our fiscal goal of not causing any additional tax impact on our community,” said Colabufo. “Our first priority is to do what is best for the safety and well-being of our students.”

The Community Café on May 1 will be followed by a public hearing scheduled for May 8 at Paul V. Moore High School at 6 p.m.

Voting for the proposed Capital Project will take place with the scheduled annual budget vote on May 16 from 10 a.m. until 9 p.m. at all district polling locations as follows: District 1 at Brewerton Elementary, District 2 at Millard Hawk Primary, District 3 at Hastings-Mallory Elementary, District 4 at Aura A. Cole Elementary and District 5 at the Cleveland Village Hall.

Information boards have been placed in each of the school buildings, and further details will also be distributed in the district’s upcoming annual budget newsletter.

Please feel free to contact the Central Square School District Office at 315-668-4220 with any questions or concerns you might have.
