What is a capital project?
Just like a home, school facilities need regular attention and upkeep to continue to operate year after year as originally intended. Capital improvement projects are a way for school districts to complete a larger amount of facilities work.
How are items in the project determined?
New York school districts are required to conduct regular building condition surveys and to develop multi-year facilities plans, which can help identify aging, outdated or energy inefficient school infrastructure and facilities issues related to health and wellness.
Who can vote on the proposed project?
Qualified voters must be age 18 or older, a U.S. citizen and a resident of the district for at least 30 days prior to the election.
If the project is approved, when will construction begin?
After a project is approved, plans need to be submitted to the state for approval. The approval process can take several months. Construction is slated to take place in summer 2022 if approved.
