April 25, 2024

The McGraw Central School District (MCSD) in New York will spend $17.8 million on a capital improvement project (CIP) to improve school buildings, renovate facilities and enhance campus infrastructure.

McGraw High School will receive the most work, starting with the gymnasium and auditorium. MCSD will renovate the school’s family and consumer science space, science lab and fitness center. The district will also build a broadcasting and recording lab and improve restrooms.

MCSD will prioritize making various site and HVAC improvements for student safety, well-being and comfort. The district will install a lobby concession stand and air conditioning in the nurse’s office. Plans include replacing the school’s flooring, sump pump, classroom ceiling tile, exterior door and ADA ramp handrails. In addition, the district will repoint the building’s brickwork to repair existing bricks and replace old mortar.

The district will build a multi-sport area and refinish the existing gymnasium floor at McGraw Elementary School. MCSD will make similar site and HVAC improvements like the high school and repair the elementary school’s terrazzo.

Plans include removing a skylight, installing window shades, replacing flooring and upgrading restrooms. In addition, the district will replace the building’s windows with added security film. MCSD will replace ceiling tiles and classroom millwork.

The district will invest in the transportation facility, starting by improving the building’s ventilation. Plans include improving the HVAC, replacing windows and replacing the bus lift.

The funds come from a recently voter-approved CIP referendum to address critical building and instructional needs throughout the school district.

MCSD is located 216 miles northwest of New York City.
