GCSD conducts district-wide building capacity study;
Reports released on enrollment projection and pupil capacity

Updated March 19, 2014—A commitment to balance the mission of a school district with the resources available to it is critical at all times, but particularly so when financial times are tough. School leaders, including those at Guilderland, must constantly examine their use of available resources and look for ways to use those resources more efficiently.

To that end, the Guilderland Central School District began undertaking a district-wide building
capacity study last fall in order to evaluate its use of space and to determine whether or not there may be more cost-effective ways to deliver its K-12 programming.

“Our mission as a district is to inspire all students to be active life-long learners, able to achieve their highest potential in a demanding and ever-changing global community,” said Superintendent of Schools Dr. Marie Wiles. “Undoubtedly, there are multiple ways in which we can reach these goals and the study we are about to begin will help us to identify the most efficient options before us.”

Led by Dr. Paul Seversky, a consultant with the Planning Service at the Madison-Oneida BOCES, the building capacity study looks at the district’s current use of space and scheduling patterns as well as current enrollment and future enrollment trends. Based on the data resulting from the above analysis, Dr. Seversky will then present the district with several options for use of existing space and program delivery models.

A community meeting was held on Sept. 3 to introduce the goals of the study and to share details about the methodology that will be used throughout the process. View the PowerPoint presentation from the September 3 community meeting (PDF)

Additional information about the building capacity study will also be posted to the district website as it becomes available.
