On May 17, 2016, Broadalbin-Perth residents approved a $39.7 million capital project that will address urgent infrastructure needs, modernize classrooms, and improve safety and security.

Construction work associated with the project is expected to begin in spring 2017. Renovated and reorganized school buildings are expected to open for the start of the 2019-20 school year, and the entire project should be completed by the end of that school year.

As the district moves forward in implementing the capital project plans, updates will be posted to this page.

Even when maps or drawings are available, it’s hard to visualize how things would look in three-dimensional space. To help residents visualize the changes outside the district’s school buildings that are included in the proposed capital project, Broadalbin-Perth worked with engineering firm Environmental Design Partnership, LLC, to create two short videos.

May 4, 2016 — The renovations and new construction proposed in the $39.7 million capital project that Broadalbin-Perth residents will vote on May 17 would take place over the next three-and-a-half years, starting as early as summer 2017 if the proposal is approved. However, district leaders are working with architects and engineers to develop a detailed construction schedule that would not disrupt student learning and would avoid the use of temporary classroom space.
