Track renovations have been completed at Colonie Central High school.

As approved by the South Colonie community in the fall of 2017, the South Colonie Central School District continues working toward accomplishing planned facility and grounds improvements, as well as safety enhancements across the district.

Phase III of the Colonie 2020 Capital Project is a $7.3 million initiative that aligns with the utilization of funding from the Smart Schools Bond Act program.  This carefully planned fiscal sequence resulted in little or no tax levy impact while working to address necessary maintenance and facility improvement projects. 

See below a complete list of projects that are currently in progress or recently completed. The work is a combination of critical maintenance items, high priority safety initiatives, and facility improvements.
