On May 16, school districts across New York State put their 2017-2018 budget proposals up for public vote. Five of Campus CMG's pre-referendum clients also asked residents to weigh in on proposed capital improvement projects, and all five found widespread voter approval.
Dozens of supporters from nine surrounding school districts attended the groundbreaking of Monroe 2-Orleans BOCES Capital Project in Spencerport, NY on Friday, June 17, 2016. The project was a first for BOCES 2 in its 60-year history. The $29.2 million in enhancements brought both WEMOCO Career and Technical Education Center and the Educational Services Center to the 21st Century with a state-of-the-art environment.

Grand Island CSD residents voted in favor of a new transportation facility Tuesday night, approving the capital project by nearly a 2-1 margin. The new 16,000 square foot facility will be built behind Sidway Elementary School. The existing transportation facility will be renovated for use by buildings & grounds.
The project is expected to be complete in September 2014 and will have no impact on the District's tax levy.
Addison CSD residents voted in favor of $22.9 million in capital improvements on Wednesday. Tuscarora Elementary School and Addison High School Plans will undergo renovations, as will the district's athletic fields. Improvements will also include a 2-story addition onto the Addison High School, allowing middle schoolers to finally study under one roof. The renovations, funded by state aid and local reserves, will not impact the local tax share.
