Saratoga Springs City School District voters on Tuesday night approved a $129.7 million capital project that includes renovations across the district’s eight school buildings. Voters supported the project 1,530 to 364, according to unofficial results from the district.
The project will fund safety improvements to the district’s school entrances, upgrades to technological infrastructures and renovations of some district classrooms. A major chunk of the project will be focused on needed roof repairs, heating and cooling system and other core building needs.
District officials have said construction would begin around June 2022 and last through September 2028 as work at schools is phased in over time and concentrated into nights and summers. Superintendent Michael Patton said he didn’t expect construction to cause disruptions that would displace students from schools or necessitate the use of temporary classroom units.
