Project forum informs community, SCS leadership

Community members learned about renovations needed at Schoharie Jr./Sr. High School during a Jan. 25 evening forum, and district leaders gained valuable feedback from local residents.

"The forum provided interested community members with insight into the need for renovations to the High School," said Schoharie Superintendent David Blanchard. "Members of the public were presented with an overview of the work of the district facility committee. The presentation showcased the need to upgrade classroom space to meet the instructional requirements of 21st century learning standards.

"Tours were provided by Schoharie CSD staff members to demonstrate areas in need of rehabilitation," he continued. "The presentation also demonstrated how a classroom that has been rehabilitated from the early 1900s can meet current learning standards and instructional practices."

Blanchard said that several questions were asked during the forum. Community members were interested in the timeline for the project and how the educational program would be impacted during construction.

"The need to approach such a comprehensive rehabilitation of an old facility in a slow methodical manner was discussed," Blanchard said. "The process will likely involve construction of small sections of the building being completed before moving on, which will be a slow process.

"The building is 90 years old and so will not be redeveloped in 12-18 months. It will likely take years, not months, to complete the project."
