Thank you for your support. 

In the 2019-2020 school year and into the summer and fall of 2020-2021 school year, the Spencer-Van Etten Central School District completed a State-mandated Building Condition Survey (BCS). This survey is conducted every five years and is needed to identify facility needs and improvements. SVE district hired an architect firm to complete this process in partnership with the district. Building off of this assessment and our previous Capital Projects, the District has been exploring and considering this project as part of its long-range strategic plan and Board of Education goals relating to fiscal stability and financial planning. This capital project falls into three main focal points: safety, security, infrastructure. 

Project Goals
