Capital Project - 2019
Posted on 12/03/2019

Voters in the Ellenville Central School District will be asked to weigh in on a Capital Project proposal on Tuesday, December 3 from 8 AM to 8 PM at the High School Media Center. After carefully considering community feedback provided by an exit poll conducted at the unsuccessful 2018 vote and reviewing a thorough analysis of proposed work from our District’s architects and construction managers, the Ellenville Board of Education eliminated $8.7 million of proposed updates to focus the project on items the community identified as priorities. The new, reduced project cost is $19,995,000, a 30 percent reduction in cost.

Voters in 2018 identified the following as priorities for the project:

  • Reduce Cost
  • Secure Our Buildings
  • Replace End-of-Life Roofs, Plumbing & Masonry (Infrastructure)
  • Expand Student Areas to Reduce Crowding
