At the Sept. 15 Board of Education meeting, Superintendent Cosimo Tangorra, Jr., announced that the capital project vote, originally targeted for Dec. 15, 2020, needs to be delayed by a matter of weeks. It will likely be held in late January or February. He said this will provide more time for the State Education Department to review the district’s plans, which is necessary to confirm the state funding for the project.
Dr. Tangorra also noted that the decision to move the vote back was meant to be responsive to those who have called for the focus to remain on reopening. This allows the district to get further into the school year and provides more time to engage the community leading up to the vote.
Dr. Tangorra continued to emphasize the importance of the project because it is part of a long-term plan to maintain and improve facilities to better serve students and protect the investment of taxpayers in our schools.
