Capital Project Construction to Begin May 4, 2020


Superintendent Rutnik is pleased to announce that construction for the Capital Project that Lake George Central School District residents approved on December 4, 2018 is set to begin on Monday, May 4, 2020. The improvements will increase safety and security, replace aging infrastructure, improve compliance with the Americans with Disabilities Act, and enhance learning environments in both schools. 

The work will begin both inside and outside the Lake George Jr.-Sr. High School. Contractors will work with our Construction Manager to ensure that safety plans are updated to provide for appropriate social distancing and other COVID-19 safety protocols.

Early work will include the replacement of two vintage boilers that have reached the end of their viable lives. In addition, they will begin to replace and reconfigure the tennis courts, and improve the surrounding drainage. 

“We are pleased that the Capital Project is beginning on schedule,” said Lake George School Business Manager Michael Varney. “Funding for the local share of the Capital Project will come from a Capital Reserve Fund that was established in 2016 and a 15-year bond issuance this summer.” 

For more information, please contact Lake George School Business Manager Michael Varney at 518-668-5455.
