Proposed Capital Project
In an effort to continually improve and maintain our facilities, the Board of Education is planning for our next capital project. Our recently completed building condition survey identified several maintenance issues and upgrades needed to keep our buildings functioning safely and efficiently. Just like your home, our school facilities are in constant need of attention and maintenance, just to keep them operational. The Jr./Sr. High School facility was constructed in 1992, and most of the finishes and equipment will be more than 25 years old by the time the project is enacted; while the Elementary ones will be more than 70 years old. Programs change and expand over time, and our spaces need to change to accommodate.
To that end, the Board of Education will be holding a Capital Project Forum to explain the maintenance needs of the school district and its vision for the future. The Board is also seeking input from the community to identify what is needed to provide our students with a 21st century learning environment and opportunities in both buildings.
This project will not cause an increase to the tax levy, as our current Capital Reserve, combined with NYS Building Aid, will allow us to complete the entire project with no impact on taxes. Operational costs and/or increases to utility bills are not expected to increase since one aspect of the project focuses on updating inefficient mechanical and electrical systems and replacing failing equipment. The vote will be held in March 2017 and should it pass, the project will be designed over a six-month period and submitted to the State Education Department in December 2017. The construction work will be phased over summer and fall months of 2019 and 2020. When completed, the project should reduce operating costs and free up time spent maintaining aging the equipment.
