Traffic, Safety and STEAM Bond Project Vote Fails

Traffic, Safety and STEAM Bond Project Vote Fails

 

The Valley Central School District held a vote on a Traffic, Safety and STEAM Bond Project (TSS Project) on August 20, 2019.  The vote failed by a close margin (585 No votes vs. 555 Yes votes). The district would like to thank the voters for participating in the vote. 

“It is tough to get a bond through in the summer when so many members of the community are away on vacation but with the NYS Dept. of Transportation slated to break ground fall 2020 on the redesign of 17K which will impact our internal traffic at the high school and middle school,  we felt it was important to try now. Since I began at Valley Central in the summer of 2015, the thing I hear about the most is the need to address that traffic. The Board of Education meets August 26, 2019 and will discuss the results and how to proceed from here” stated Superintendent, John Xanthis.
