The project highlights include renovating and expanding the high school library, renovating art classrooms, upgrading the school technology system, updating consumer science and technology classrooms, installing new roofs at three elementary schools, enclosing the middle school library, installing solar energy panels at Sacandaga, as well as a new playground.
The board has said that some of the classrooms in the district are 50 years old, and the phone and computer system has not been updated in more than 10 years.
The most significant change may be to the district's athletic facilities, where officials plan to install an all-sport synthetic turf field, and an eight-lane running track, as well as bleachers along the track that will seat up to 500 people.
In addition to the Nov. 15 hearing, the district will also hold a public hearing on Monday, Dec. 8, at 7 p.m. The vote is scheduled for Dec. 16. ""
