STEAM Capital Project

In 2012, Glens Falls City School District residents approved a $9.9 million capital improvement project to upgrade technology throughout the district, including:

  • $5.2 million of district-wide technology improvements, including wireless infrastructure in each building;
  • security cameras and door access control;
  • new data wiring; and
  • installation of an internet protocol telephone system.

Each school’s library was updated into a “media center,” by reabsorbing the computer lab space into the overall library floor plan, and redeploying computer technology as portable laptops and/or tablets. The project upgraded technology infrastructure that was more than a decade old, and four generations behind industry standards.
