$23M Addison School Project Hits the Home Stretch

The Addison school district’s $23 million capital project is in the home stretch, with the final major piece still under construction - a new gymnasium - expected to be finished by December, and possibly sooner. The project includes a new middle school wing, a new high school gymnasium, a revamped athletic complex and major infrastructure work a Tuscarora Elementary School.

Like No Other: Take a Tour of the New MacArthur

Rising from the once-flooded bed of land on Vestal Avenue in the South Side of Binghamton is a remarkable new school building, one outfitted with state-of-the-art technology and built with the students and staff — and the nearby Susquehanna River — in mind. With a total project price tag of about $79.5 million, the new MacArthur is designed to promote experiential, collaborative learning indoors and out through a series of open spaces and a focus on sustainability.

Improving Schools the Smart Way: Smart Schools Funding

In the November 2014 New York State General Election, voters approved the Smart Schools Bond Act (SSBA), which authorized $2 billion of general obligation bonds to be issued to finance improved K-12 educational technology and infrastructure throughout all school districts in the state. The main idea behind SSBA is to provide funding for specific types of capital projects, including adding or upgrading technology, security, and pre-K learning spaces, to provide students with the educational tools, opportunities, and skills needed to succeed in the 21st century economy. After you first identify how much funding your district is eligible for, there are a few steps to take before submitting the required Smart Schools Investment Plan (SSIP) in order to get through the process smoothly.
