Teachers and parents talk about the importance of the Capital Project vote Nov. 2

Berne-Knox-Westerlo teachers and parents talk about the importance of the upcoming Capital Project vote on November 2nd.

“This building is in real need of repair and real need of upgrade,” said Dr. Timothy Mundell, District Superintendent, while talking about the Elementary school.

“I just know that the times have changed,” said BKW parent Rebecca Miller. “Our kids need the foundation, the technological foundation, to be able to go on to college and go on to their careers.”

“It’s going to have so many benefits for the generations to come and for their children, this community,” said 2nd grade teacher Michelle Van Patten.

The Capital Project vote will take place on November 2nd from 6:00 a.m. to 8:00 p.m. in the Secondary School auditorium.

Proposition #1 involves $14.8 million in repairs and modernization to the Elementary school. Proposition #2 involves approximately $5 million in improvements to the Secondary School, focusing on technology infrastructure, security, and site enhancements around the district.

Proposition #2 CANNOT be passed on its own, and will only pass if voters approve Proposition #1.
