    Capital Improvement Project

    At the foundation of the Poughkeepsie City School District’s (PCSD) capital improvement project are five essential goals. These goals are fundamental components of the capital improvement project as they help establish the basis upon which the project is developed. The goals guide the planning, funding, and prioritization of the district’s capital improvement project.

    Goal 1: Improving Health/Safety/Welfare ● Security ● Accessibility

    Goal 2: Strengthening Facilities Infrastructures

    Goal 3: Establishing Efficiencies in Building Utilities

    Goal 4: Improving Educational & Program Spaces

    Goal 5: Improving School Property Sites

    In its commitment to maximizing facilities and resources to provide the most optimal learning environments for students now and in the future, PCSD has aggressively engaged in analyzing its facilities and developing recommendations to achieve the five capital improvement goals outlined in the project.
