R.I.S.E. Project

R.I.S.E. Project Overview


The R.I.S.E. Project 
passed alongside the Budget Vote on May 16, 2023. In the months following, the District began work with architects, engineers and construction managers to formulate detailed plans for submission to the State Education Department (SED) for review. Included in the planning were a variety of stakeholders who provided key information and perspectives of the various project elements. That included staff, faculty and students. Now the architects and engineers are working to bring that input to life. The following is a list of next steps in the project:

    • May - October 2023: Design Phase
    • October - January 2024: SED Review
    • January 2024: Bidding
    • Spring 2024 - Fall 2025: Construction

In recent years, West Irondequoit CSD analyzed the state of its facilities, infrastructure and learning spaces. After working with strategic partners and receiving community feedback, we developed a multi-phase, long-range Capital Improvement plan – more of a vision, really – and the first leg is this year’s R.I.S.E. Project. Learn more details via the links on this page, but one of the most important aspects of the project is this: NO TAX IMPACT.

Having no tax bill impact was the result of smart planning, fiscal responsibility and by leveraging our capital reserve funds and state aid. R.I.S.E. will make dramatic improvements to areas of need. It will revolutionize outdated Library Media Centers, bringing us up to speed with other schools. It will enhance safety and security in a variety of ways, and it will help us make necessary upgrades to facilities and systems. It will improve our schools and the learning experience for students, staff and our community.
