On Monday, October 30, 2017, residents of the William Floyd School District will have the opportunity to vote on a proposed facility capital improvement project that addresses infrastructure deficiencies in each of our buildings as reported in the New York State mandated five-year “Building Condition Survey;” this project also delivers much needed upgrades and improvements.
In addition to repairs, the scope of this project includes upgrading the three secondary school auditoriums (WFHS/WFMS/Paca) – turning them into state-of-the-art facilities for our music and theater students; installing air conditioning in the three elementary schools that currently do not have it – John S. Hobart, Nathaniel Woodhull and William Floyd Elementary schools; a centrally-located adaptive playground accessible to students with special needs and a public resource for the entire community; as well as improvements to our athletic fields turning them into multi-sport state-of-the-art synthetic turf facilities for our student athletes and local community groups.

Thanks to the sound financial planning of the district which includes the creation of a voter-approved Capital Reserve Fund in the amount of $5 million (2016), and nearly 88% (.88 cents on the dollar) in New York State building aid; this project will go out to voters with no additional local tax impact.
William Floyd continues on an upward trajectory through all facets including student achievement (highest graduation rate ever for four-year cohort), financial operations (increased credit rating, responsible and sensitive budgeting) and more.
And remember, please come out to vote on Monday, October 30, 2017, at William Floyd High School, 240 Mastic Beach Road, Mastic Beach, NY, 11951. See you at the polls!
