Pennoyer is faced with many financial challenges due to its aging facilities. Many long term building issues are in critical need of repair or replacement. Mandatory Life Safety Work is required to be completed over the next few years. Additional major building improvements and repairs are needed throughout the building to address long term issues with the electrical and plumbing systems that are reaching or are well beyond their life expectancy. Pennoyer’s aging facility and outdated learning spaces puts our students at an academic disadvantage to their surrounding school’s peers.
It has been 50 years since any significant improvements or renovations have been made to the academic wing of Pennoyer School. Pennoyer’s limited revenues has made funding these critical building issues impossible without the support from the community. The last referendum for a tax to benefit Pennoyer School was passed over 20 years ago in 1998.
If the proposed referendum passes, construction will begin in the fall of 2018 on Pennoyer’s improved facilities with occupancy occurring in the 2019-2020 academic year.
