COOPERSTOWN – Though the full scope of the $5 million capital project is still coming into focus, Supt. of Schools Bill Crankshaw gave the school board a sneak peak at some of the projects that could be in the plan during their meeting this evening.

An exterior digital sign and reconstruction of the baseball field, including dugouts and a backstop, were recent additions to the project.

“A $5 million cost to the capital project has been projected so far by our architect, and that falls well within what we can afford to spend without having an additional tax increase,” Crankshaw said.

He will reveal the full scope of the project in mid-September, he said.

In addition, he told the school board that the district had purchased 15 licenses of Lexercise, a  structured online literacy curriculum and therapy for students with dyslexia, using a Scriven Foundation grant.
