School project to un­dergo some tweaks

Dear Com­mu­nity Mem­bers: Last year, the Morrisville-Ea­ton Cen­tral School District pro­posed a district-wide cap­i­tal project that in­cluded sig­nif­i­cant ren­o­va­tions and im­prove­ments to our fa­cil­i­ties. You and your neigh­bors voted over­whelm­ingly in fa­vor of com­plet­ing that work. I wanted to take this op­por­tu­nity to thank you for your sup­port and to of­fer some up­dates on the project.

Fol­low­ing your ap­proval of the project, we went to work with our con­struc­tion team to de­sign the project and de­velop more ac­cu­rate es­ti­mates on the work. As project de­vel­op­ment evolved, the es­ti­mates for the cost of the work came in higher than an­tic­i­pated. Know­ing the ne­ces­sity of the work in­cluded in the project pro­posal, our board and ad­min­is­tra­tive team have been work­ing with our ar­chi­tects, con­struc­tion man­ager and at­tor­neys on a so­lu­tion.

We be­lieve that with some mod­i­fi­ca­tions to the project scope, we will still be able to meet the needs of our stu­dents, en­hance the ap­pear­ance of our build­ings, and keep the ma­jor­ity of the work in­tact, re­main­ing on sched­ule and within the bud­get. The changes in scope will not af­fect the work iden­ti­fied in the En­ergy Per­for­mance Con­tract ap­proved last win­ter.

Please join us for a spe­cial board meet­ing on Mon­day, Oct. 2, at 6 p.m. in the Mid­dle/High School Li­brary, when we will fi­nal­ize the scope of our cap­i­tal project. If you have ques­tions, please do not hes­i­tate to con­tact me at (315) 684-9300.
