Jamestown BOE Approves Capital Improvement Project For Community Vote
The Jamestown Board of Education approved a five-year, $86.5 million dollar Capital Improvement Project to be presented to community members for a vote on Tuesday, May 18. As JPS is reimbursed at a rate of 98 percent for capital projects, and the district has saved the remaining two percent needed to fund the local share, there would be no local tax impact for the proposed $86.5 million project. The Capital Improvement Project has three goals: modernizing classrooms and student spaces, improving safety and security, and maintaining our investment in our school buildings.
The Capital Improvement Project will start with six schools - Jamestown High School, Persell Middle School, Fletcher Elementary School, Lincoln Elementary School, Ring Elementary School, Tech Academy & the Bus Garage. In addition, there will be district wide IT upgrades at all Jamestown schools.
There will be a public hearing on the Capital Improvement Project as part of the Budget Hearing on Tuesday, May 11 at 6 p.m. in the Persell Middle School auditorium. The vote for the Capital Improvement Project will take place for registered voters on Tuesday, May 18 from noon to 9 p.m. at Lincoln Elementary School, Jefferson Middle School and Washington Middle School. If a community member has questions on registering to vote, please contact JPS District Clerk, Jaunita Walter, at 716-483-4420 or email email@example.com by May 4, 2021.
