Katonah-Lewisboro School District officials have released a video presentation they’ve created to explain a Dec. 8 referendum that seeks voter approval to spend about $3.13 million to create and refurbish athletic fields at John Jay High School.
The half-hour video is available on the school district’s Web site — www.klschools.org. The presentation, called “Focus on K-L schools — Special Edition — Community Referendum,” features Superintendent Robert Roelle, School Board President Michael Gordon and other school district officials discussing the referendum.
The Dec. 8 referendum asks voters to approve spending money out of a capital reserve fund established in March.
The money would be used to create a grass softball field and a turf multi-purpose field at the AP Farm property across the street from the high school. Money would also be used to build restroom facilities on AP Farm and to renovate an existing baseball field back on the high school campus.
The funds would also pay for installing air conditioning in the high school band and chorus rooms. It would also pay for installing lockers to store musical instruments.
