Recently, the Fulton City School District Board of Education approved a resolution to bring capital improvement projects, totaling $15.1 million, to voters in a May 21st referendum vote.

This will be concurrent with the vote for the 2019-20 school budget, said Brian Pulvino, superintendent of schools. A summary of the project will be included as part of the public hearing for the budget at 6 p.m., May 8, at Fulton Junior High School, 129 Curtis St, Fulton.

“If this is approved we will be able to start the process of design and New York State Education Department approvals immediately, with the goal to begin work in 2020 said Pulvino. “Because 99.9 percent of the cost will be covered by state aid and the District's Capital Reserve Fund, there will be no tax increase to cover these costs. Pulvino emphasized, "Making these improvements now will save our district taxpayers the expense of having to include them as part of a future school budget without the benefit of state aid.”

For more information, contact Brian Pulvino, Fulton superintendent of schools, at 593-5510.
