On December 13, 2017, the Cortland educational community turned out at the polls to support the renovation of the auditorium. Located at the Junior Senior High School, it’s the only auditorium we have in the district; all seven schools share it. The $6.5 million capital project was approved 386 to 109. The 1964 auditorium has been relatively untouched since it was constructed and is in need of safety upgrades and significant modernization. Almost all of the project (88%) will be funded by the state, and the Board of Education has saved enough in the Capital Reserve Account to cover the other 12% without having to raise taxes.
Several of our newsletters have captured progress of the construction. Here are some images from the construction with links to the articles/newsletters:
