Promise Project Updates

Promise Project Updates - Summer 2016
Posted on 06/27/2016
The Promise Project was approved by voters in May 2014 by 61% of the voters in our community (yes-1643, no-1057).

Update June 2016
Additional work will be performed on all campuses, these entries highlight projects that may have an impact on our community's use of facilities. 

Colebrook School
-The school and the playground closed June 24.
-A trench will be dug across the front of the property to connect sanitary lines. 
-The fields behind the school are open. 
-Anticipated completion date is mid-August. 

Seneca School
-The Seneca campus closed June 24.
-Inside, a classroom will be remodeled to accommodate full-day kindergarten and four student bathrooms will be renovated. 
-Outside, the building foundation will be waterproofed and a drainage system will be installed. This requires moving soil away from 3/4 of the building. 
-Outside, trim will be painted and the decorative columns by the entrance will be restored. 

The following project is not part of the Promise Project, but will take place this summer:
Central Campus Paving
-The parking areas behind IHS and part of Dake (east side) will be resurfaced. See map.
-The athletic fields and tennis courts will remain open. 
-There is a parking area on the north side of Listwood School that provides easy access to the fields. 
-Anticipated completion date is August 1.

Full-day Kindergarten - The construction of two classrooms at each of these schools: Briarwood, Brookview, Colebrook, Listwood and Southlawn to provide space for full-day kindergarten. Seneca School can utilize existing space for an additional kindergarten classroom. Work at Seneca School would include restroom renovations, replacement of some carpet, upgrades to classroom electrical service, painting and restoration of outside trim and columns. This work will be done in the summer of 2016.

Technology – Building-wide wireless access points, student technology, LED projectors, and additional cooling in data closets

Security - We are moving from analog to digital cameras as we replace outdated equipment and are installing additional card readers on outside doors

Energy -  Supplemental heat would be added to K-3 classroom “pods,” tie-in of exterior lighting to energy management system, installation of transfer switches at K-3 buildings, electrical panel boxes will be replaced at Rogers and Iroquois Middle Schools and pest control measures around HVAC units at Rogers would be installed.

Dake Roof System – replacement of portions of roof bringing the entire roof system under warranty,   

Health and Safety Maintenance and Improvements at Athletic Venues– replacement of “carpet” at Gordon Allen Field, addition of safety netting at the ends of the field, replacement of surface on all-weather track and the addition of drinking fountains in the track area. There will be new padding in the IHS gym and dust collector systems in IHS and Dake tech classrooms will be replaced providing a safer environment and allowing us to leverage NYS Building Aid to cover approximately 80% of the cost of the track and field surface replacements.
