Capital Project Proposal
Our school facilities serve as a source of pride as well as a significant investment by our local community. In order to protect our investment and make sure that our students have safe and appropriate learning spaces, our Board of Education has been exploring the possibility of a capital improvement project for just over a year.
During that time, our Facilities Committee has done a line-by-line review of our required Building Condition Survey (BCS), and in the process, identified the most pressing needs of our District. In addition, our Board of Education has also committed to saving for capital improvements through Capital Reserve Funds.
It is anticpated that at its meeting on March 27, the Naples Board of Education will approve a $7,725,000 Capital Building Project. The proposed capital project will have no tax impact or tax increase. Community members will vote on Tuesday, May 16 from 7 a.m. to 8 p.m. in the High School Library.
