A reminder about delays and closings
SCS reports delays and closings in a number of ways,

than one source of information for important announcements.
Community to vote on H.S. repair and renovation project
Just as Schoharie Central is dedicated to preparing
its students for a successful future, it
invests considerable time and energy into caring for the buildings
and classrooms in which they learn. Daily wear and tear and the aging of the
high school and its systems have taken their toll beyond what can be
remedied through routine maintenance and repair.
At the same time,
technology and space requirements for today's learners are vastly
different from the past. District residents will vote on a proposed
capital project for the 90-year-old
building. Most of the cost would be covered by state aid.
Turning a crawlspace into a hallway is among the ideas in a proposed Schoharie High School capital project.
