Congers Elementary Bid Awarded

The Clarkstown Central School District announced that they have awarded bids on the Congers Elementary School repairs that created controversy last school year. In February residents voted between closing the school and moving the students to various schools in the district, or repairing the cracked wall that officials proved to be a health and safety hazard to students and faculty. The vote approved repairs and the district now states that enrollment is declining, and is expected to continue doing so, though officials have not stated if that will effect the decision to rebuild. The district awarded a $4.3 million dollar bid for contract work in repairs, which could begin this month, hopefully being completed by June 2015. A study completed by Western Suffolk BOSCES showed that many of the buildings in the Clarkstown District are underused and the school board will hold a public meeting on December 17 to discuss the findings.
