East Ramapo Residents To Decide Fate Of $58 Million Bond For Schools

EAST RAMAPO, N.Y. – The East Ramapo school district wants to spend close to $60 million fixing up or replacing roofs, windows, floors and other crucial infrastructure, according to a report by lohud.com.

The $58 million capital projects referendum, set for a public vote on Tuesday, Dec. 6, would also give the district money for air-conditioning and heating units, sidewalks, bleachers, security system, new science labs, special ed classrooms, upgraded athletic fields, and a wi-fi network, lohud.com reported.

The needed improvements were included in the district's five-year strategic plan with input from its state-appointed monitors in December 2015, the lohud.com article said.

The defeat of a similar $40 million bond proposal in 2015 was partly attributed to a lack of trust in the troubled district’s ability to handle more funds without state oversight, lohud.com had reported.

School board president Yehuda Weissmandl, saying students learn best in a safe and healthy environment, recently praised new Schools Superintendent Deborah Wortham for, he said, working with the monitors to improve educational offerings and programs, lohud.com reported.
