    Phase 1 
    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.
