Summer 2021 Work at Fairport High School is on schedule!

August 24, 2021


Work progresses on the 2019 voter-approved Fairport Forward Capital Improvement Project, which began in June 2021 at Fairport High School. This work is aligned to the District’s strategic initiatives that were adopted by the Board of Education in April 2018.


Crews spent the summer working on Phase 1A of the Capital Improvement Project, which involved demolishing all the walls in the kitchen and cafeteria spaces, and demolishing a portion of the second floor classrooms, in which science rooms will be reconstructed.


The 2021-22 school year work will include an upgrade to the kitchen and cafeteria spaces, while a temporary serving line is set up in the gymnasium. The FHS community will see continuing demolition of north and south courtyards this year. The north courtyard will become a mechanical penthouse and the south courtyard will become a classroom.

Crews this summer also removed the existing turf and infill from the stadium, and re-graded the stone subbase. New turf was installed and is accessible now. Meanwhile, crews will start work on the multipurpose field this year, with completion scheduled for August 2022.

Photos above show the construction that took place during Summer 2021, including: New Turf Field now in use as of August 2021 (top), Cafeteria-Kitchen Floor Removal (bottom left), and the South Courtyard Excavation (bottom right).

July 2021 Project Update

July 8, 2021


Work on the 2019 voter-approved Fairport Forward Capital Improvement Project is well underway at Fairport High School (FHS). During the week of June 28, crews with Campus Construction and Labella Associates began removing kitchen equipment and moving it to the gymnasium for temporary storage. As the construction part of Phase 1A of the project began and ceiling panels were removed, crews covered lockers in the hallways adjacent to the cafeteria. Meanwhile, crews monitored a family of ducks that had made its home in the cafeteria courtyard. After the last egg hatched on June 30, Perinton Animal Control safely relocated the family!


Construction crews say the abatement process and demolition are expected to begin on the second story science classrooms later this month.

The project team (Campus CMG, Labella Associates, & FCSD) has established a bid opening date of March 30, 2021. The project team is anticipating very favorable participation for all contracts. The project team has been working closely with Fairport administration, Operations and Maintenance Director, and High School Principal on the construction Phasing Plans & Site Safety Logistics Plans for the upcoming work this summer.

This portion of the project is expected to bid in the Fall of 2021 (depending on SED approval), with construction beginning in the winter of 2021. Work for phase 1B will occur in the following buildings: Johanna Perrin, Minerva DeLand, Martha Brown, Brooks Hill, Jefferson Ave, Northside, and Dudley.

Capital Project VOTE is Tuesday, Dec. 10 (Superintendent Community Letter)

Dec 3, 2019

Dear Fairport Community:

The Fairport community is preparing to vote on our proposed capital improvement project, Fairport Forward: Foundations for the Future, on Tuesday, Dec. 10 at Johanna Perrin Middle School gymnasium from 6 a.m. – 9 p.m.

Highlights of the proposed $56.7 million Phase 1 Capital Improvement Project include:

  • Secure entrances at each building and districtwide safety improvements

  • Districtwide infrastructure maintenance and boiler replacements

  • Technology rooms renovation at Johanna Perrin Middle School

  • Science classroom upgrades at Fairport High School and Martha Brown Middle School

  • Reconfigured bus loop and student drop-off/ pick-up at Jefferson Avenue School

  • Cafeteria and gymnasium renovation at Fairport High School

  • New corridor and lockers at Fairport High School

  • Multi-purpose fields at Fairport High School for physical education and athletics

With 77.9% of the cost delivered through New York State aid, the impact on the average property of $200,000 is estimated to be $45 a year. This impact is for a period of 15 years during which the debt is paid and state building aid is received.

The expenses related to this project will not result in the District exceeding the property tax cap. Additionally, there is no impact on the exemption/credit related to the STAR (Basic/Enhanced) program since that is a separate program administered by NYS. For more information about STAR, visit: https://www.tax.ny.gov/pit/property/star/eligibility.htm.

On the Ballot:

  • Proposition #1 is the proposed capital project

  • Proposition #2 is the capital building reserve fund

To learn more information about this project, visit: capitalprojects.fairport.org or see the Frequently Asked Questions about this project.

I look forward to seeing many of you next Tuesday, Dec. 10 at Johanna Perrin!

Sincerely,

Brett Provenzano

“Our community has high expectations for its schools, and these upgrades will create healthy, safe and engaging environments that will leave a lasting impact for decades to come,” said Superintendent of Schools Brett Provenzano. “We firmly believe in the potential of the Fairport CSD. We anticipate moving forward with our facilities planning initiatives and building upon the rich legacy of our school community.”
