HANCOCK, NY – On December 5, 2019, voters in the Hancock Central School District overwhelmingly passed an $8 million capital improvement project that was developed to address safety, infrastructure, food service, technology, and maintenance concerns at the Hancock Elementary and Middle/High schools and bus garage.

District officials announced Thursday night that voters supported a project that carries no additional tax impact to residents, by a margin of 104 yes votes to 31 no votes.

The Hancock Central School District Capital Project is part of the District’s long-term commitment to developing a solution to safety and infrastructure issues and meeting the academic program needs of the 21st century, particularly in science, math, and technology.

“Our community’s continued support of this school district is so important and deeply appreciated, not only by the Board of Education, myself and our staff, but by the students who will benefit from this project now and in the future,” said Terry Dougherty, Superintendent of Schools. “Over the past 17 years, this is the third capital project local residents have supported, totaling nearly $25 million dollars in construction renovations and enhancements. We are sincerely humbled and grateful for the trust we have earned.”

Renovations are expected to begin in the late spring or summer of 2021. Please contact Dougherty at 607-637-1300 with questions.
