The WCSD has been working diligently to maintain and improve our buildings and grounds through Capital Projects approved by the voters and available NYS funding.
The $33 million 2018 Capital Project addresses roofs, windows, and HVAC needs. The roof/window portion has been designed and the bid has been awarded to AFI Architechtural Metal and Glass of Poughkeepsie. Window work will begin this summer and continue through the school year. Completion is anticipated for August 2020.
The roof replacement project contract for Fishkill Plains Elementary School was awarded to General Roofing Contractors of Queensbury. Work will begin in June after school ends and is expected to be complete in August 2019.
The HVAC project is in the design phase, with the expectation that it will be submitted to NYSED for review in September 2019. Construction will be done during the summers of 2020 and 2021.
The vestibule project, designed to improve security at the entries at all schools was approved by the NYSED Smart School Bond Act office on December 3, 2018. The project will be bid in January and construction is scheduled for the summer.
