On Tuesday, October 16, Guilderland Central School District residents voted down the district’s $42.7 million capital project by a tally of 1375 no votes (51 percent) to 1317 yes votes (49 percent) .
“We are disappointed in the outcome, especially because it was so close. We will use the feedback from our exit poll to re-evaluate and plan our next steps. There is still critically important work to be done to keep our students in a safe, secure, healthy learning environment,” said Dr. Marie Wiles, superintendent of schools.
The capital project had proposed to address necessary improvements to enhance the safety and security of district buildings and grounds, make learning environments healthier and more comfortable, and modernize learning spaces.
