In 2017, voters approved a $39.7 millon, multi-phase capital project at Broadalbin-Perth Central School District to address infrastructure needs, modernize classrooms, and enhance safety and security.
An addition of five new pre-kindergarten classrooms at the Perth campus will create modern, flexible classrooms to enhance active learning for young students at a critical developmental age. In the center of the addition, a common area will feature soft seating, write-on wall surfaces, and built-in benches to promote learning outside the classrooms.
Renovations of existing kindergarten and grades 1-3 classroom space will accommodate groups of various sizes for one-on-one instruction and small group learning. Community and support spaces will be converted into general classrooms to provide additional instructional space.
Past the new secure vestibule, a two-story atrium will feature large windows to take advantage of natural light. The media center, located directly off the atrium, will be centralized to serve the entire school. A new cafeteria will be located on the second floor with open views into the atrium.
Renovations to the existing bus driver transportation room will allow the space to double as a classroom for a possible auto tech program. Designing spaces to serve multiple functions allows the district to offer additional programs without changing existing space.
The project includes a major reorganization of educational and support spaces at both the Broadalbin and Perth campuses to improve organization and safety. Additional improvements include a renovation of the elementary auditorium, secure vestibule renovations, transportation center improvements, athletic upgrades, and infrastructure improvements.
Upon completion, the project will enhance safety and security, support 21st century learning, upgrade athletic facilities, and improve operational efficiency.
