Ithaca City Schools rolled out a plan to improve education for the next decade with a $100 million plan.
District administrators unveiled the 2019 capital project Wednesday. It would upgrade teaching and learning space, enhance security, and fix aging infrastructure.
Taxes will not rise.
“This capital project will allow us to meet the needs of our contemporary learners," said Superintendent Dr. Luvelle Brown. "It will allow us to enhance our instructional spaces to meet their needs; to provide some mental health support through our spaces, to provide additional support to our co-curricular programs, to provide safety and security that our young people are asking for. To do all the things that we say we need to do."
Two other presentations are scheduled for December 13 and January 17. Ithaca board members will vote in January, and taxpayers will have to approve it in May.
