Fort Plain Central School District Capital Project

The Fort Plain Central School District has an ongoing $11.2 million capital improvement project. The project includes improvements at the Fort Plain Junior-Senior High School, the Harry Hoag Elementary School and the district Bus Garage. The project was approved by voters in a December 2018 referendum by a tally of 83-15. The district hopes to have the project completed by December 2021.

The capital project addresses three major areas of need:

Health and Safety

  • Fire alarm system upgrades at both schools
  • HVAC upgrades at both schools
  • Classroom door security upgrades at both schools
  • Installation of an emergency generator at HS
  • Cafeteria renovation and Kitchen upgrades at Harry Hoag School

Building Maintenance and Enhancements

  • Roof reconstruction at both schools
  • Replace outdated windows in a portion of the Harry Hoag School
  • Masonry restoration at both schools
  • Refinish Gym floor, install new divider curtain and wall pads in HS Gymnasium
  • Server room expansion
  • Enclose open maintenance area at Bus Garage

Site Maintenance and Improvements

  • Replace Water Main/Sanitary line at Harry Hoag Campus
  • Replace pumps serving athletic complex
  • Reconstruction of Track and Softball Field at Athletic Complex
  • Paving reconstruction including Tennis and Basketball Courts at the Junior-Senior HS and parking and site improvements at Harry Hoag
  • Drainage reconstruction behind the bus garage

The project is financed in part by $1.3 million from the district’s capital reserve fund. The remaining funds are provided by the sale of bonds. Fort Plain is eligible to receive a 94.9 percent reimbursement from the state on allowable expenditures. As a result of the combined use of capital reserve funds and state building aid, the project does not result in a tax increase for homeowners.
