McGraw Schools Capital Project Approved by Taxpayers


Taxpayers in the McGraw Central School District have approved a capital project referendum on Tuesday, April 16th. Final vote: 55 for Yes and 23 for No. McGraw Schools says the project will address critical building and instructional needs throughout the district, enhance student safety, and improve the quality of both education and recreational spaces.

Overall, 94.7% of the cost of the project would be paid through the New York State Building Aid. The capital project is estimated to cost about $17.8 million dollars. The district sought approval from taxpayers for about $15.5 million. The remaining funds would be funded through McGraw Schools capital reserves. The overall tax impact McGraw Schools says would be less than .25%.
