Voters in school district referendums Tuesday approved propositions on school busing and funding for future construction projects in the Attica Central School District in Wyoming County and for a capital improvement project in the Chautauqua Lake Central School District in Chautauqua County.
In Attica, a proposal to provide transportation for students who live up to 19½ miles from school passed, 155-80. The state-mandated maximum distance is 15 miles. Another proposal authorizing the School Board to set up a capital reserve fund of up to $10 million to pay for construction, reconstruction and equipment also passed, 125-115.
In Mayville, a capital reserve fund will help support a $12.25 million Chautauqua Lake Central School capital improvement project which was given the green light, 256-84. It will be completed at no extra cost to taxpayers, district officials said.
The project will make school buildings more energy efficient, convert a classroom for the school’s STEM program, improve security, rebuild the parking lot and fix the drainage problems on the athletic fields.
