WHAT IS PROPOSED TO BE DONE:
  • Completely modernize JFK to suit its full population including a new centrally located Library/Media Center, larger multipurpose assembly room, dedicated art room, enlarged nurse's office, as well as adequate classroom space for regular and special education students.

  • Remove all asbestos from J.F.K. Elementary.

  • Install new modern safety and security enhancements in all buildings.

  • New concession stand/bathrooms near our existing athletic fields.

  • New windows, exterior doors, floors, ceilings, student bathrooms at J.F.K.

  • Modernize the high school library for a 21st century student learning experience.

  • Install an improved ventilation system at C.V. Starr.

  • Expanded J.F.K. cafeteria, 4 additional C.V. Starr classrooms, 6 additional JFK classrooms.

  • New roofs installed at C.V. Starr and the high school...and much, much, more.
HOW MUCH WOULD IT COST ME?
  • The state already has sent Brewster Schools $100,000 to help offset the cost of the proposed new concession stand/bathrooms to be located near our existing synthetic turf field.
  • The state also will pay Brewster to support the cost of these improvements. Brewster has a 42% building aid ratio.
  • Thanks to state aid for this project and to historically low interest rates, homeowners with an average assessment would see their school tax bills increase by $7 to $9 per month for this $38.9 million project.
