A new date for a vote to determine the future of the Remington Educational Complex in Ilion will soon be scheduled, this time excluding a portion of the property.

The school boards for Herkimer BOCES and the Central Valley School District were supposed to vote November 14 on whether or not BOCES should purchase the building from Central Valley, but BOCES posted a notice to its website on November 3 saying the vote had been postponed indefinitely so the two school boards could review potential impacts of the purchase, such as the use of the athletic fields behind the building. Now, the Central Valley School District says a vote is expected to take place within the next three months, with the athletic fields excluded from the purchase.

A notice posted on Central Valley’s website states that the initial vote was postponed because people within the Central Valley community were concerned that selling the building and its adjoining sports field would negatively impact Central Valley athletic programs.


Herkimer BOCES wants to buy the building from the school district for just one dollar, because BOCES says that for every dollar Central Valley collects in the sale, it reduces the amount of state aid the district is eligible for. Herkimer BOCES already occupies the building as a tenant, and Pathways Academy is located there.
