District mulling relocation of students and staff during capital project

Marcellus Central School District will need to relocate some students and staff during the 2016-17 and 2017-18 school years to accommodate the construction window of the district’s $14.85 million capital improvement project, Superintendent of Schools Judith C. Pastel told board members during their Jan. 25 meeting.
The temporary relocations are needed to create the “swing space” contractors will need to do their work, starting this summer. The work includes a complete renovation of all classroom spaces and corridors at Marcellus High School, as well as partial roof replacement, relocation of the main office and main entrance, renovated locker rooms and a new choral room.
Marcellus administrators have been studying the relocation and all its possible permutations through the lens of the district’s five “non-negotiables,” as well as the following guiding principles: 
  • Safety of students and staff;
  • Quality of instruction;
  • Cost of two-year relocation;
  • Seniors graduation from their high school; and
  • Minimized disruptions. 
Based on these principles, all viable relocation scenarios include housing grades 11 and 12 at the high school.
“I believe it’s very important for all those students who began their high school careers at 1 Mustang Hill to be able to end their journeys there, too,” Dr. Pastel said.
The scenarios also include: grades 5-10 based at DMS and grades K-4 housed at KCH, with the addition of one portable classroom; or grades 6-10 at DMS and grades 4-5 at Kasson Road school, with grades K-3 remaining at KCH. One of the scenarios also includes the relocation of the district and business offices from DMS. Administrators are still reviewing options about where those administrative operations could move.
The administration continues to investigate possible placements of the fourth and fifth grades and the potential scheduling of DMS with various multiples of grade levels under one roof, Dr. Pastel said.
