CSArch is partnering with Ichabod Crane Central School District to complete a capital improvement project that will modernize existing facilities, improve educational and athletic programs, and address health, safety and infrastructure conerns across all student-occupied buildings.
The existing guidance office was expanded and renovated to incorporate additional student support services, resulting in a more open, collaborative space for student resources. The renovations provided a more welcoming entry and gathering area for one-on-one or small group meetings between students and counselors.
Renovations to three art classrooms provided new finishes, casework to accommodate specific storage needs, and overhead electric cord reels for improved flexibility, enhancing the creative environment. A new dark room was constructed, designed to support the school's popular photography program.
The existing high school will be reconfigured to support the district's STEAM program, allowing for a new technology and engineering addition. The addition will include a transportation and materials shop, wood shop, two innovation labs, and a CNC fabrication classroom.
Approved by voters in December 2018, the district-wide capital project will enhance academic programming, athletics, health and safety, and infrastructure.
Additional improvements at the high school include auditorium renovations to modernize the space and improve lighting and sound technologies. Middle school classroom wings require renovations to fit the needs of 21st century classroom design by promoting collaboration, connectivity and flexibility.
Secure entances will be designed at all school buildings in order to provide a single entry point that allows administrators to clearly see who enters and exits the building. Bullet-proof windows and a sophisticated lock system will give students and faculty a feeling of safety in the event of an emergency.
