Smart Schools Investment Plan 


Over the last three years, the Morris School District has worked on the development of ways to best use the funds from the Smart Schools Bond Act (SSBA) that was passed through a state-wide referendum in November of 2014.  A preliminary plan was first developed and approved by the Board of Education in March of 2016 after a public hearing.  Since the approval of the initial plan, the needs of the district have altered slightly so the plan has been further refined. 

The new SMART Bond plan was reviewed with the Board of Education at the November  2017 meeting and the district is now going through the 30 day comment period on the plan.  If you have any comments or suggestions, please feel free to contact the district office at 607-263-6102 or attend the public hearing that the Board of Education will be having prior to the regular BOE meeting on December 21st.  The hearing will commence at 6:30 PM. 

 The draft of the plan can be accessed by clicking here.

In response to the one water sample that we received on December 13, 2016 that showed a higher than acceptable levels of lead, the district replaced the outlet from where the sample was taken and had it retested.  We just received the results of this sample back and it showed less than .5 units of lead per billion, well within the acceptable level allowed by the state.  For the most recent test results, please click HERE

With this analysis, all outlets tested are now considered lead free by the state.


On Wednesday, December 14, 2016 the district received the results from the remaining 53 samples that were conducted for possible lead contamination in the school's water.  Of the total 69 different outlets tested, one showed a higher level of lead in the water than is accepted by the New York State Health Department.  This outlet is not used for drinking, but the district will still be replacing the outlet and then we will retest the outlet.

    About Us

         The Morris Central School District is located in the south-central region of New York State. It is equidistant between the cities of Norwich and Oneonta. Interstate 88 is minutes away and provides easy access to both the cities of Albany and Binghamton. Syracuse and Utica are also within a reasonable driving distance.

         The school is located within the village of Morris, nestled in the heart of the historic Butternut Valley. Agriculture has been the backbone of this community for decades. While farming is still a presence in the Butternut Valley, many district residents commute to work in Oneonta, Norwich, Cooperstown and Sidney. The district enjoys the strong support of the community as evidenced by eleven consecutive positive budget votes. 

         Twenty-five miles southwest of Cooperstown, Morris enjoys many recreational and cultural opportunities. Hartwick College and SUNY Oneonta are located in nearby Oneonta. Binghamton and Albany Universities as well as SUNY Colleges Morrisville, Delhi, and Cobleskill are also within easy commutes.
