Residents Approve Capital Project

December 11, 2018

Cairo-Durham Central School District residents have approved a $28.9 million Capital Building Project by a vote of 284 (51.9%) in favor to 263 (48.1%) opposed.

"We are grateful for the community's support in today's vote," said Superintendent Anthony Taibi. "This project is an investment in academics and our future while also addressing some infrastructure items.”

The capital project includes several building and maintenance concerns including asphalt replacement, athletic field repair, a new well and a new generator at the middle/high school. It also addresses parking and accessibility improvements at the elementary school.

Additionally, the project will bring 21st century enhancements to the District’s academic programs by modernizing high school classrooms for Science, Technology, and the Arts. These spaces have seen minimal renovations since first built in 1976. Other project components at the middle/high school include centralizing offices for shared school services and combining the main offices to create a single, more secure entrance for both schools.

Work on the Cairo-Durham CSD capital improvement project is expected to begin as early as summer of 2020 and be completed by the fall of 2022.
