  • Dear Niagara Wheatfield School Community,

    On behalf of the students, staff, and Board of Education we thank you for coming out to vote and for supporting all five propositions.

    The 2018-2019 budget will restore some academic programming at all levels.  We will now be able to utilize our Transportation Reserve Fund to purchase seven new buses, establish an additional Transportation Reserve for future bus purchases, alleviate a long-standing parking problem at Errick Road, and replace the Dectron unit for our pool.

    Lastly, we want to express our gratitude and congratulations to Richard Sirianni and Steve Sabo as the elected Board members.


    Steve Sabo, Board of Education President

    Daniel Ljiljanich, Superintendent of Schools

    Capital Project Update…

    In September we concluded Phase I of our current Capital Project.  Phase I included significant roofing work at Edward Town Middle School and the High School.  The work completed can be seen on the highlighted maps, by clicking here for Edward Town Middle School, and here for the High School.

    Phase II of our Capital Project should begin in the spring of 2018 and conclude by December 2018.  The highlights of Phase II include:

    • Repaving work and concrete pad replacement at Errick Road Elementary and the Bus Garage.
    • Exterior wall repair at Colonial Village, Errick Road and the Bus Garage.
    • Exterior door replacement at Colonial Village, Errick Road, and the High School.
    • Entry and Main Office renovation at Errick Road.
    • Renovation of science classrooms and Nurse’s Office at Edward Town Middle School.
    • Staircase repair at Edward Town Middle School.
    • Air handling and ventilation replacement at all schools and Bus Garage.
    • Cabinet heater replacement at Colonial Village.
    • Hot water tank replacement at Colonial Village, Errick Road, and West Street.
    • Hot water base pumps at Edward Town Middle School and High School.

    Following Phase II we will utilize the remaining allocated funds for Phase III of the project, which are items currently set aside as alternates.  The alternates we have selected for Phase III are predominantly additional roofing areas. There are still significant facilities repairs or replacements needed, as identified in our 2015 Building Condition Survey.  We were not able to include all of the identified areas in the current project.  Once the final Phase III drawings are complete we will provide an update.

    It is important to note that even after the completion of Phase III (alternates) we still have many areas in need of repair/replacement and upgrade.  The good news is that some of the areas in need of improvement will be covered in the upcoming Smart Schools Project or Energy Performance Project.  Also, we are already planning to begin discussions for the next Capital Project, with planning meetings happening as early as the summer of 2018.



    Niagara Wheatfield Central School District

    Smart Schools Bond Spending Plan



    What is the Smart Schools Bond Act?

    The Smart Schools Bond Act (SSBA) was passed as part of the 2014-15 New York State budget and approved by voters in a statewide referendum held on Nov. 4, 2014.

    The SSBA authorized the issuance of $2 billion in bonds to finance educational technology and infrastructure to improve learning opportunities for students throughout the state.



    How much will Niagara Wheatfield Central School District receive under the plan?

    The district was allocated $2,707,858 under the SSBA.

    The state will reimburse the district for 100 percent of its expenses as identified in the Niagara Wheatfield Smart Schools Investment Plan.

    This plan earmarks $2,007,464 of the allocation for infrastructure that will support network and security upgrades in alignment with our Strategic Planning process and long range Facilities Plan. Niagara Wheatfield CSD plans to implement its plan beginning in Summer of 2018. Smart Schools bond funds remain available until a district has used its entire allocation.



    Is there any local cost associated with the technology purchases?

    There is no local cost associated with the initial purchase.



    When will the Board discuss the plan and its’ impact?

    On April 5, the Board of Education will hear an overview of the proposed plan.



    Is there a public hearing on this plan?


    Yes. The Niagara Wheatfield CSD Board of Education will conduct a public hearing as a part of its 7 p.m. May 17 meeting. The plan requires a vote by the Board for approval.



    In alignment with our Strategic Planning process and long range Facilities Plan, the following chart outlines the planned expenditure of the Smart Schools Bond Act monies:
