Brewster Schools Break Ground On Long-Awaited Capital Project

On the first day of summer vacation, Brewster Central School District administrators, board of education members, teachers, community residents, parents and students gathered for a groundbreaking ceremony on Bears Field, to mark the start of construction for the Brewster Vision Capital Project.

The event “marks the start of exciting improvements to our school buildings and campus,” said Brewster School Board President Kerry Cunningham. She gave special thanks to the community “for supporting these projects that will significantly improve our students’ academic and extracurricular experiences.”

Newly-minted Superintendent of Schools Dr. Michelle Gosh thanked the many students on hand for the groundbreaking, noting that they “could have spent their first day of summer vacation sleeping in.”

On June 5, the district received approval on the first construction permits for the capital project from the New York State Education Department.

This first phase of construction will focus on health and safety projects, such as the Brewster High School security vestibule, and those which typically require the shortest NYSED review time for approval, such as the track and synthetic turf field replacements. 

Multiple phases will be required to address all projects, which are expected to be completed by the fall of 2026. Construction updates will continue to be provided at board of education meetings throughout the year, as well as through various print and digital media.

Due to additional approvals from NYSED being delayed, plans for the second phase of construction – including updates to the C.V. Starr cafetorium and BHS field house – have been extended, with worked expected to begin in spring 2025.
