$9.9 million capital project approved

Thank you district voters!

On Tuesday, February 4, voters in the Watervliet City School District approved the capital project bond referendum 138 yes to 60 no votes, a margin of 69.7 percent.

The passage of the referendum will allow $9.9 million in health & safety and infrastructure work to move forward at the elementary and junior-senior high schools.

“I thank the voters who came out to support our schools, students, teachers and staff. We are pleased with the results of the vote and thank the community once again for their support,” said Superintendent of Schools Dr. Lori Caplan.

Next, architects will prepare plans for the project that will be submitted to the State Education Department for approval.
