Construction is getting close to wrapping up on Jamesville-DeWitt Central School District’s $33 million capital project. Work began in June of 2021; the new projected completion date is this April. 

A new STEAM space, class updates, and renovations to broadcast, media, and studio areas are nearing final stages at the high school. A lot of work has already been completed at the building. Improvements were made to the HVAC, boiler, electrical, and plumbing systems. Additional parking at Lyndon Fields and new solar panels were also added.

The reconfiguration of grades 6 through 8 to create flexible learning is still in the works at J-D Middle School. Work on a new yoga/fitness area and locker room updates are expected to be done by the end of the school year. The renovation of the Library-Media Center also continues. Completed projects at the middle school include new windows, additional parking, and pool repairs.

Moses DeWitt Elementary School will soon have a reconfigured entryway and main office suite. It will help create a more secure point of entry. LED lighting has been updated.

Projects at the Jamesville and Tecumseh Elementary Schools as well as the bus garage are complete.
