ELMIRA HEIGHTS, N.Y. (WENY) -- The Elmira Heights Central School District (EHCSD) is continuing to work on its $12-million capital building project, passed by voters back in 2016.
In a school board meeting Wednesday night, Superintendent Mary Beth Fiore gave an update on the progress of construction.
Right now, they are working on Phase II of the project, which focuses on Cohen Elementary School.
The goal of the project is to protect community investment in district facilities, and provide updates to meet future educational needs.
"One of the areas that was really a total renovation, is the cafeteria at the Cohen complex," said Fiore. "That is coming along. It's on schedule. We're very pleased with the progress and we hope that we will be able to continue that pace and we will be able to afford our students, and our community, a brand new cafeteria at the end of the project."
The Superintendent says they'll also be adding a preschool addition onto the elementary school.
If work remains on schedule, she believes this phase of the project will be completed by the start of the next school year.
