CARMEL, N.Y. -- Residents of the Carmel School District will head to the polls on Monday to vote on two bond propositions.

Proposition A totals $37.2 million, while Proposition B totals $48.3 million. If Proposition A fails, Proposition B will not go forward.

Proposition A will replace roofs in each school at a cost of $12.3 million, add solar panels at each school at a cost of $5 million, purchase land to build a new transportation garage and bus yard for $11 million, make updates to be compliant with the Americans With Disabilities Act for $822,00, reconstruct softball and baseball fields for nearly $4 million, renovating the library for $1.4 million and converting a baseball field to a parking lot for $2.6 million.

Proposition B will add innovation wings to the high school, including an 800 seat performance center, tech classrooms, and music classrooms specifically designed for music rehearsal and learning to replace existing dated and constrained music education space at a cost of $40 million. It will also expand Carmel High School parking at a cost of $2.4 million, add a wellness center for $4 million, and upgrade the fields at the high school for $1.4 million.

Polls will open from 6 a.m. to 9 p.m. and voters can vote at Carmel High School, Kent Elementary School, and Matthew Paterson Elementary School.
