PORT WASHINGTON SCHOOL DISTRICT BOND FAIR

The Board of Education will present the proposed projects along with the financial facts. You will have an opportunity to have your questions answered! The school district is at a crossroads and one of only a few on Long Island showing an upward trend in enrollment. The district's facilities are aging and were never designed to support the needs of today's students, the more rigorous and competitive curriculum, future enrollment projections and the Board of Education and administration's educational vision for the future.
THE BOND VOTE IS ON TUESDAY, MARCH 10th AT WEBER MIDDLE SCHOOL FROM 6:00 AM-10:00 PM
