In December 2020, residents of the Gloversville Enlarged School District approved a $32.5 million capital project. Designed to enhance school safety and security, improve educational programming, address aging infrastructure, and modernize outdoor play spaces, several areas of the project were completed in time for students to kick off the 2023-2024 school year.
A large, open corridor previously occupied the center of each middle school wing. To provide additional learning opportunities within the existing footprint, CSArch created learning pods in the 6th and 7th grade wings. Flexible furniture, multiple teaching walls, and transparency between spaces allow teachers to create engaging learning activities outside the typical classroom setting.
Approved by district residents in December 2020, the capital project was largely informed through the completion of the state-mandated Building Condition Survey. Additional improvements include roof replacements at nearly all school buildings, parking lot redesign at the high school, and the creation of a new parking lot and bus loop at Kingsborough Elementary School. The project will be completed over several summers to minimize the impact on learning with full completion scheduled for Fall 2024.
