Capital Projects

  • MS HS Picture

    We are proud of our partnerships and grateful to our community – from voters who consistently support our schools during budget and capital project votes, to the countless number of volunteers who dedicate their free time to help kids, to our towns that always respond positively to requests for assistance. We could not do it without your support.

    Capital Improvement Project 2023

    On December 12, 2023, the Frewsburg Central School District community approved a $14,350,000 capital project.  This project encompasses necessary repairs and upgrades to facilities on both the RHJ Elementary and MS/HS campuses.  This project will be completed in two phases with work projected to start in the summers of 2025 and 2026. 

    Before the vote on December 12, a 6 part video series hosted by Superintendent Shelly O'Boyle and created by FCS senior Cash Steward was published to explain this project's planning process.
