From the Hendrick Hudson School District: The Hendrick Hudson School District announced the voters of Hen Hud have rejected the “Implementing the Vision” Bond Referendum. The bond was defeated 1777 to 977.
The $25 million “Implementing the Vision” bond would have enhanced our academic, athletic and fine arts programs through new science classrooms at both Blue Mountain and the High School, and two new synthetic turf fields and a Community Performing Arts Center.
“Our community has spoken,” remarked Superintendent of Schools, Dr. Daniel McCann. “While the results are disappointing, it represents the voice of our community. Still though, our needs remain and going forward we will reexamine those needs with the community.
“The democratic process is one of the most important and fundamental functions of our society. I would like to thank everyone who took part in this important vote. Many voices were heard, thoughts were shared and as a result I believe we are a better, stronger community.”
