Out of its proposed $171 million capital plan, the Utica City School District is planning on spending $42 million on Proctor High School alone.
Let's see . . .$42 million for Proctor + $37 million for Proctor on the last project (the 2002 Millennium project) = spending $79 million on one school in just 10 years. Either amount alone is breathtaking, but together? If they didn't get it right the first time, why should the public think they will get it right now?
This is a feeding frenzy for contractors and architects . . . Student education is of secondary importance to this board.
