During the last school year, Spotswood Public Schools surveyed our community on security, safety, facility, and classroom heating/ventilation issues in all four of our schools. The results of that survey and the condition of specific areas within, and around, our school facilities resulted in the development of a referendum proposal for November of 2015. This referendum will allow our school district to immediately address critical security, safety, facility, and classroom heating/ventilation needs.
The cost of the projects total $9,343,707 but in preparation for the referendum vote, Spotswood Public Schools applied for, and was approved to receive, ROD grants and debt service aid in the amount of:
$3,157,457 in State Funding!
What is the Plan?
During the Summer of 2014 the Board of Education reviewed a list of needed repairs and upgrades to our schools and the surrounding facilities.
Community Input in November 2014
In November 2014 the community received a survey online and at key community locations through a paper form, to assess the community's feelings.
During the Summer of 2015, and in September and October meetings will be held and information will be provided about the referendum.
