C-PP Residents Voting on Consolidation


Residents of the Corning-Painted Post School District are heading to the polls Thursday to vote on the latest consolidation plan.
The district’s $97.4 million plan would consolidate the district’s middle and high school students into one building each, the current East and West High buildings. Both of them would be expanded.
The plan also calls for the layoff of several teachers and staff members, and the closing of a few of the district’s elementary schools.
Voting will be open until 9pm. State aid will cover most of the cost.
This is the sixth consolidation proposal that the district has put up for vote since 2000. Each of them has so far been defeated, including Alternative C, which was voted down this past March.
If voters approve Thursday’s plan, construction will begin in the summer. If not, it will be at least a year before a new plan is presented to voters.
