• BCSD Explores Capital Improvement Project Possibilities 

    The Bedford Central community prides itself on consistently high expectations and sound investments in its schools. We are at a critical point in the district’s future, requiring the development of a Capital Facilities Improvement Plan. This plan will address many updates and improvements for the next 5-10 years and beyond, funded by a potential Spring 2022 Bond proposal, an Energy Performance Contract, as well as annually by the facilities budget and Capital Reserves.

    In short, BCSD schools and grounds conditions need updates and improvements. Many buildings have served students well for more than 70 years and now require basic updates and renovations for academic success. The aging of some facilities and systems combined with evolving programmatic needs require investment for BCSD schools to continue to deliver the quality and breadth of learning experiences its students need and the community expects.

    The district’s Bond Project Advisory Committee, made up of staff, administration, Board of Education and community members has been touring buildings and working closely with district architects to formulate a vision for the future. Please check back often for important updates.
