Following an extensive planning process to identify and prioritize facility improvements, Ichabod Crane Central School District partnered with CSArch to complete a capital project that modernized educational spaces, enhanced athletic facilities, and addressed health, safety and infrastructure concerns across all three school buildings.
The high school technology program previously operated out of a dated space that was too small to support the instructional changes in CTE programs. The new STEAM Center addition separates design space from the adjacdent woodshop and automotive classrooms, allowing the district to introduce new courses and better engage students in various trades programs.
Approved by voters in December 2018, the district-wide capital project enhanced academic programming, athletics, health and safety, and infrastructure.
Additional improvements at the high school included auditorium renovations for improve lighting and sound technologies. Safety and security upgrades created new secure vestibules at all 3 schools with bullet-proof windows and a sophisticated lock system to give students and faculty a feeling of safety in the event of an emergency. Middle school classroom pods were renovated to provide improved lighting, technology, and finishes.
A new road connecting all three schools reduces the student pick-up and drop-off time. The reconfiguration of the middle school parking lot separates bus from vehicle traffic and alleviates congestion.
