Central School District

2017 Capital Improvement Project

On February 28, Goshen Central School District residents approved a $30.48 million capital improvement project that will help create 21st century learning environments, address safety and security, modernize the performing arts program and auditorium and upgraded the athletic facilities at Goshen High School.

Construction will likely begin in June 2018 and will take approximately 11-16 months to complete.

As the district moves forward in implementing the capital project plans, updates will be posted to this page.
