North Colonie Capital Project

Overview

In May 2017, voters approved a $106.3 million capital project for the North Colonie Central School District. The project includes four phases, with all work expected to be done by September 2021. Below you will find what is included in each phase, with a timeline of the work.

Facilities improvements include the creation of new and flexible learning spaces that will allow for hands-on, project-based learning in science, technology, engineering, arts and math (STEAM), additional classroom space to address the continued enrollment growth at the elementary level and security upgrades that will strengthen safety at each school.

Phase 1 and 2 of the capital project includes the addition of a fifth hall to transform the current 7-8 junior high to a 6-8 middle school model, a new library/media center and renovations to existing classrooms and learning spaces, as well as site work and construction of fields at the Shaker Junior High and Shaker High School campuses. Boght Hills and Southgate elementary schools will also add classrooms and spaces conducive to more project-based learning.

Phase 3 and 4 of the project includes renovations at Forts Ferry, Loudonville and Latham Ridge. In addition, the counseling and administrative offices at Shaker High School will be relocated and special education classroom space will be expanded.
