    Voorheesville Developing Plan for Capital Project in 2017-18

     

                The Voorheesville School District is planning for a vote on a Capital Project in May 2018.  The primary focus of this project is repairs and renovations to district schools.  The District Facilities Committee has reviewed the Building Condition Survey conducted in 2016 to select the most critical items for inclusion in the Capital Project.  The full Building Condition Survey may be found on the district website, under the quick file library here:
