Kristine Orr Talks About the Transformation at South Glens Falls CSD
Elementary School Addition
The addition at Ballard Elementary added six new 21st century classrooms, equipped with multiple teaching walls and various seating styles to easily reconfigure the space. Modern LED lighting automatically adjusts based on the amount of natural light a room receives, enhancing energy efficiency and cost savings.
A combined transportation and operations/maintenance facility centralized the district's facilities department and provided administrative, service and maintenance improvements. Site work at the high school constructed a separate drop off area and dedicated bus lane to alleviate congestion and improve safety.
The district-wide capital project includes an eight-classroom addition at the high school and a six-classroom addition at Ballard Elementary School to accommodate the growing student population. The project also features expanded library media centers and renovations to music and art classrooms at Ballard and Tanglewood Elementary Schools, two new tennis courts, a basketball court, and a resurfaced track.
Site and building maintenance improvements include new roofing, windows, doors and flooring across all six school buildings. A combined transportation and operations/maintenance facility was constructed on the site of the lower bus garage on Harrison Avenue to address health and safety concerns and update and enlarge the space.
