Middleburgh Central Schools Capital Project

Middleburgh voters passed a capital project on December 12, 2018 225 yes votes to 102 no votes, or a margin of 68.8%. More details on the project will be posted here as it moves forward.

In an effort to provide the best possible education and learning environment for our students, the Middleburgh Board of Education approved a Capital Project to be put forward before voters. The cost of the project is $15,000,000 and will be a tax neutral project. This means that taxes will not increase as a result of the project.

The project includes over $9,000,000 in renovations and improvements at the Jr./Sr. High School and over $5,000,000 in renovations and improvements at the Elementary School. Construction on the project is anticipated to in mid-2020 following approval from the State Education Department, with construction anticipated to finish in 2021.

At the Jr./Sr. High School, improvements include:

  • Replacing auditorium HVAC
  • Replacing the cafeteria floor
  • Media Center and Computer Room (113/115) alterations
  • Student bathroom renovations
  • Secure entry alterations

At the Elementary School, improvements include:

  • Secure entry alterations
  • Student bathroom renovations
  • Window replacement

Plans for both schools include sidewalk repairs and replacement, HVAC upgrades, stormwater structure and pavement replacement, fire alarm system upgrades, and more.

Respondents to our Exit Survey on the budget in May rated Middleburgh’s facilities a C+. 67% of respondents wanted bathroom renovations included in any future Capital Project, while 40% wanted HVAC improvements included. This project allows the district to upgrade its facilities to provide the best possible education for our students with no tax increase to our community.
