Thank you to everyone who came out to vote on the Bare Necessities Bond. Your support ensures that we are one step closer to a healthy, safe, and energy efficient environment for our students and school community. The critical timing and subsequent approval of the vote allows us to meet the November 13, 2009 application deadline for the Qualified School Construction Bond. This near zero interest bond will save Charlotte taxpayers over a million dollars in interest payments.
Moving forward, we have begun to develop the processes that will allow us to take advantage of the very favorable construction climate and maximize the dollars allocated for the scope of work for our school. The Board will continue to update progress through the school newsletter, local newspapers and on our website, www.ccsvt.us.
We are entering the next phase of the construction project. The board approved a construction committee charge (see link below) and is seeking an interested faculty member to serve on the committee. If you are interested, please submit a letter of interest to firstname.lastname@example.org We are looking at selecting members on December 22nd.

Many components of these systems do not meet current codes and are in need of replacement. Inadequate ventilation and inconsistent heating distribution systems make it more difficult to create an ideal learning environment for students and staff…..The 1949 building is in the most disrepair. Extensive work will need to be undertaken on the building’s exterior envelope, roof, window, ventilation and heating systems, plumbing, fire protection and all interior finishes.“
