Centauri Middle School earned the Governor's Distinguished Improvement Award and Manassa Elementary earned the John Irwin Award. When any individual or school receives an accolade, it is a victory for the team and with that we recognize that any award is a reflection of the collective.
BEST GRANT UPDATE
May I take a moment to express my gratitude for being able to serve in the NCSD. I certainly appreciate each day, and especially appreciate our students as there is no group like them.
I want to quickly update you on the efforts to replace CENTAURI HIGH SCHOOL, via a BEST Grant, and where the application process is at the current time:
*The BEST GRANT APPLICATION has been submitted to CDE, with notification of approval/decline slated for late April, early May.
*If successful, the NCSD has already received a statutory waiver, reducing the amount of taxpayer contribution from 49% of the total cost of a new building (BEST's matching % for NCSD), to 20.947847%
*With the waiver, instead of a new building built at a cost of $15,726,750.90 (the usual 49% match), the cost would be $6,419,082, a significant reduction.
*The current facility sits at an FCI (Facilities Condition Index, the calculation of what it would take to refurbish the current complex to code as compared to new) is 84% (see photo).
*The decision by our public on whether to approve the district match and proceed with an update to our district buildings, this time at CHS with the reduced amount, would occur at the polls in November.
Should you have inquiries or wish to speak about any of the process and future decision, please contact me at 719-274-5174.
