Dear Oneonta City School District Community,
I hope this message finds you well. I am writing to share some pivotal information regarding a proposed OCSD (Oneonta City School District) capital project that stands to shape our educational programming and opportunities for our students for decades to come. The scope of this project is extensive, encompassing both the glaringly evident and less apparent needs of our schools. The proposed capital project is scheduled for a crucial vote by our district's taxpayers on December 18th, 2023, with a budget of $30.45 million.
Our schools, built between the late 1950s and mid-1960s, have withstood the test of time, but the years and the elements have begun to take their toll. These challenges are now impacting the quality of education we can provide. That's why I am profoundly grateful for your support in considering this vital project.
On Monday, December 18th, 2023, we are asking voters to endorse a $30,450,000 Capital Project for the Oneonta City School District. Your support is instrumental in realizing our vision of modern, efficient educational spaces that will empower and challenge our students, ensuring they receive the highest quality education.
I sincerely appreciate your commitment to our schools, students, and the future of our community. Your support in this endeavor is invaluable. Please mark this important date on your calendar, and let's work together to secure a brighter future for our students and our beloved community.
Thomas F. Brindley
Superintendent of Schools
