Summer Busy With Capital Project Work

(Aug. 8, 2014) School may be out for the summer but there are plenty of summer construction projects underway throughout the Ichabod Crane CSD as part of the $7 million capital improvement project residents approved in December, 2012. The project addresses many of the critical repairs necessary to ensure the health and safety of the students, faculty, staff, and community members who use the District’s facilities.

With the capital project divided into two phases, Phase One was completed last year with the resurfacing of the track, new roofing on some sections of the high school building and masonry repairs at the high school. Phase Two is underway with major renovations to the high school, including the gymnasium, Library Media Center, nurse and guidance offices, locker rooms and a fitness room.

Additional projects underway this summer as part of Phase Two include the replacement of the deteriorated bus parking lot and some windows and doors, new lockers at the middle school, new master clock and PA systems and a new route to the Primary School playground in compliance with the Americans With Disabilities requirements.

The capital project also includes a comprehensive technology component to improve the district’s aging computer infrastructure. Significant improvements have already been made to improve the network and technology in the classrooms, including more laptops on carts for student use, new computers in labs, and Smartboards and LCD projectors in each classroom.

The capital project is funded through the use of state aid, one-time revenue sources, and reserve funds.
