This week the Sevastopol Board of Education voted unanimously to go to a referendum at the November election. The people will be asked to vote on a proposal for a $25.1 million building plan. The plan calls for replacing aging facilities along with a $2 million operational referendum to maintain current programming.
The board expressed thanks to community members who participated in the planning process over the last year. There were 15 meetings held where the people discussed the problems and proposed solutions. The general consensus of those at the meetings was that this option presented for taxpayer approval, would meet an important number of educational, safety, structural and mechanical needs for the school and its students.
The option has new elementary classrooms, new technical education spaces and it updates the the science classrooms and laboratories along with providing improved spaces for varying needs of special education instruction. It allows the school to abandon the 2 structures in poorest condition, those of 1924 and 1946. The referendum vote will be in the general election November 6.
