Planning for Phase I, which was authorized by the State of New York, is expected to total up to $325 million in bonded projects. The RJSCB, on January 31, 2011, voted to send the Draft Comprehensive School Facilities Modernization Plan, Phase I, to Albany for review by the State. The plan is a concept draft for initial review by NYS. Plans for individual buildings will be refined during the final design process with the input of the Building Advisory Committees for each building.
The Phase I Comprehensive School Facilities Modernization Plan is over 300 pages with images, charts, and other large format files. The document has been broken up into 5 parts for faster downloading. Please click on the links below to download each of the 5 parts.
Planning for Phase II, which was authorized by the State of New York and subsequently signed by the Governor in December 2014, is expected to total up to $435 million in bonded projects. The Master Plan for Phase II is currently underway.
The RJSCB is currently seeking bids for Furniture, Fixtures and Equipment (FF&E) for the School 12 Phase 1c project. The bid opening will be held at 10:00am on October 1, 2015. Information can be found here.
