I occasionally creep on my old school district's website, and I ended up reading through a referendum that's coming up for the vote soon. And my mind blew.
They want to do some kickass stuff! They want to convert some spaces into a black box, a multimedia auditorium, and build a new wing on the highschool for more art studios, more math spaces, AND get some CNC equipment in! I screamed when I saw this. If I were still living in the district, they would have all the yes votes from me.
AND the state of NY is paying 75% of the costs.
Guys, I am so jealous of the kids who will get to use this. I will have to go back and creep on it once it's finished.
My old school district is awesome, and I'm so glad they're recovering from the budget cuts that plagued my time there.
