  • NEWS: Studying the District's Five Year Plan - Garden City Life

    The Five Year Plan was presented to the Board of Education during the summer at the July 2 meeting and was modified over the following months until its official approval at the same meeting at which the Master Plan was approved on Sept. 22. The Five Year Plan was submitted to the Board by J. Michael Orifici & Associates, the construction management company hired by the district. The buildings covered by this plan are: the high school, the middle school, Stewart, Stratford, Hemlock, Homestead, Locust, the Administration Building, and the bus garage. Year one of the Five Year Plan begins in 1998/99 and concludes with year five in 2002/03. The costs of work similar to that in the Five Year Plan that were scheduled for the 1997/98 school year total $1,776,910 and were already approved as part of this year's annual budget. The total for the Five Year Plan (which does not include 1997/98) will be $5,501,576.
