Capital Projects

The Schenectady City School District is in the process of implementing a long range renewal plan that includes construction and updates to all of the district schools.  The plan ensures ongoing maintenance, moderate reconstruction and renovation of the district buildings.  It also addresses overcrowding in some schools, forecasted enrollment shifts across the city, equity issues and deteriorating conditions at some of the district's oldest buildings.

Phase I of the plan, which was approved by voters in March 2014 and is well underway, includes $70 million worth of work primarily to support changes to the grade level configurations in September 2016.   Central Park School and Mont Pleasant Middle were both converted to 6-8 middle schools.  Oneida School, which has been closed since 2012, was also renovated to open as a 6-8 middle school in September 2016. 

The Howe Elementary School building is currently under construction.  A new second floor addition is being added to create additional classrooms.  Phase I also included priority work at Van Coraler Elementary School, Paige Elementary School and Steinmetz. 

Planning for Phase II, which addresses elementary schools,  is currently underway.  A referendum vote is scheduled for May 16, 2017.
