Voters in Greenburgh rejected a proposed $114.6 million capital project to consolidate schools in the district by a nearly two-to-one margin.

With a 2,284-1,257 unofficial tally, voters in Greenburgh rejected the proposal, which included a unified campus for all Greenburgh students.

“Although we are disappointed in the outcome of our Capital Project vote, we are unbowed in our determination to improve our school surroundings and the education of our precious students,” Schools Superintendent Tahira Dupree Chase said. "We will continue our hard work and determination to move the Greenburgh Central School District forward.

“I must thank all our hard-working parents, volunteers, administrators, and staff for their tireless efforts in getting out the vote in record numbers. Our team worked so hard to support our schools. I am humbled by the massive turnout, and I respect our community’s decision."

If it was approved, Richard J. Bailey and Highview Elementary would have closed, and a new school building for students in grades 3 through 8 would have been constructed. Lee F. Jackson would have been expanded to include Pre-K through grade 2, and Woodlands would become the High School.
