Facilities Improvement Projects

  • Facilities Improvement Project Update (January 2017)
    The district has been undergoing facilities renovations and upgrades over the past 7 years and completed the projects on time and under budget. A proposal was approved by voters last May to invest savings into additional site work and renovations. Plans were developed and are in the final approval stages with SED to install public restrooms in the old bus garage next to the stadium field for use during outdoor events and to complete related site work in the adjacent area including drainage, fencing, blacktop, lighting and minor demolition to accommodate maintenance vehicles.

    The Middle School north parking area will be completely rebuilt with a new subsurface, base, top coat and striping. The Middle School Weight Room will be renovated to create a new cardiovascular Physical Education station, including new equipment, floor, electrical upgrades, lighting and painting. New equipment has also been secured for the High School Weight Room and dugouts are planned to be installed at the Varsity Softball Field.

    Facilities Referendum Proposal Approved by Community at May 2016 Vote
    The district has been undergoing facilities renovations and upgrades over the past 6 years and has completed the projects on time and approximately $1 million under budget. We developed a proposal that was considered by voters in May 2016 to invest this savings in additional site work at the Middle School and make needed improvements to our athletic facilities. 

    The proposal includes installing public restrooms in the old bus garage next to the stadium field for use during events and related site work to the adjacent area including drainage, fencing, blacktop, lighting and minor demolition to accommodate maintenance vehicles. The Middle School north parking area will be completely rebuilt with a new subsurface, base, top coat and striping.  The Middle School Weight Room will be renovated to create a new cardiovascular Physical Education station, including new equipment, floor, electrical upgrades, lighting and painting. New equipment will also be secured for the High School Weight Room and dugouts will be installed at the Varsity Softball Field.

    The district will complete all the needed planning and seek necessary approvals during the coming months. Final plans will then be submitted to the State Education Department for necessary approvals and projects will be scheduled to begin in the spring of 2017.

    Facilities Improvement Project Updates - Summer 2015
    The second phase of renovations at Milton Terrace Elementary School was completed in the summer of 2014 and phase three will be completed during the summer of 2015.

    The Wood Road Elementary School relocated to the former Milton Terrace South building for the 2014-15 school year and has since moved back into the refurbished building (June 2015), including renovations to classrooms, flooring, mechanical systems, gymnasium and bathrooms.

    A grand reopening will be held on September 2, 2015 at the complex – watch for details as September arrives. Classes begin September 8, 2015 for all students in BSCSD.

    The final phase of the project at the Wood Road Elementary School complex will begin with the removal of the former Milton Terrace South school building and the construction of a bus loop, parking lot and new roadways during the 2015-2016 school year.

    At the High School, Phase 2 improvements at the athletic facilities during the summer of 2015 include renovation work on the track and surrounding fields. Roofing projects are also being completed at the Middle School and sections of the Wood Road school complex.
