Health, Energy Efficiency & Academics: Phase 1

Project Overview

On Dec. 14, 2021 New Hartford Central School District residents approved a capital improvement project, referred to as the Health, Energy and Academics Project.

The cost of the project is estimated at $39,815,000 million and is anticipated to have no additional impact on the local tax share.

The school facilities are an essential and valuable community asset to the New Hartford community. They not only serve as the center for a highly regarded academic program, but as the main resource for community continuing education programs, athletic and extracurricular events, and community meetings. The facilities are highly utilized and the investment in the facilities is significant.

Steps must be taken to preserve the facilities and to update them to meet the changes required by curricular needs. Renovations are needed for health and safety reasons, to preserve existing facilities, to continue curriculum programs adopted and to improve building accessibility.

The work will be performed at the following locations: Perry Jr. High, Senior High School, Myles Elementary, Hughes Elementary and Bradley Elementary.
