Champlain Valley Educational Services (CVES), also known as Clinton-Essex-Warren-Washington BOCES, in consultation with its 17 component school districts, is developing a Capital Project to make some needed repairs and upgrades to CVES facilities in both Plattsburgh and Mineville.
Most school districts have capital projects every few years as specific items (roof, furnace/boiler, windows, doors, pavement, etc.) reach the end of their expected lifespan. This allows school districts to better meet the needs of their students by keeping their facilities in good repair, address safety concerns, and upgrade necessary infrastructure such as technology and phone systems.
The last CVES Capital Project was in 1985, and consequently, after 32 years, there are many needed repairs to CVES facilities. For example, the roof at the Plattsburgh Main Campus on Military Turnpike has undergone numerous repairs over the past few decades, and now needs a total replacement.
We want to ensure that our facilities will maintain the high quality that you have come to expect from CVES, and that we will continue to be a regional economic resource, providing career training and college readiness to our students. This Capital Project will support and strengthen our North Country’s educational programs for all K-12 students and our component districts for the foreseeable future.
CVES has formed a Facilities Advisory Committee (FAC), comprised of CVES administrators, teachers, staff, union representatives, and CVES Board members, to consider recommendations for repairs and upgrades based on our 5-Year NY State Education Dept. Building Condition Survey. The FAC meets monthly, and an executive summary of each meeting is available by clicking the following links:
