Rochester-area voters OK $21.9 million to improve school campuses

March 14, 2024

The Brighton Central School District (BCSD) in New York will use $21.9 million voters approved last month to build and improve facilities at three schools. The district will withdraw $4.9 million from its existing capital reserve and will leverage State Building Aid to offset the debt to be issued to complete the project.

Work at Brighton High School will cost approximately $12.9 million. The project will include installing synthetic turf on the multi-purpose athletic fields, reconstructing the parking lot and aligning the entrance and exit.

The district will install an elevator to increase accessibility at the high school’s front entrance and enhance access to the building’s fourth floor. Other plans include renovating the entire fourth floor, replacing classroom flooring, hallway flooring and other outdated finishes. The district will also install modern HVAC equipment.

BCSD will use approximately $2.6 million to expand French Road Elementary School’s kitchen by 1,200 square feet, update the mechanical room and add freezers and coolers. The district will also install updated heat pumps throughout the school. In addition, BCSD will rehabilitate the bus loop and parent drop-off/pick-up area to improve safety and ensure all buses can fit in the loop.

The district will allocate approximately $853,875 to increase safety at Twelve Corners Middle School. The project will include moving the main office to the first floor, allowing BCSD to repurpose the space for mental health services.

Brighton is located 3.6 miles southeast of Rochester.
