POLAND – At its regular meeting on March 21, 2019, the Poland Central School District Board of Education awarded bids to the lowest responsible bidders for the district’s upcoming $12.1 million capital project. The district dubbed the work Capital Project 2020 to represent the projected fall 2020 completion date. Bids were awarded to the following contractors:

  • H.J. Brandeles Corporation (plumbing): $596,000

  • Giruzzi Plumbing & Heating (mechanical): $1,241,000

The project was originally approved by voters on May 16, 2017, and just recently received final New York State Education Department approval. Bids were opened on March 12 and reviewed by the district’s facilities committee on March 14, prior to being approved by the Board of Education.   

“Balancing the need to create a safe and nourishing environment for our students with the need to be fiscally responsible has always been our goal in developing this project,” Poland Superintendent Laura Dutton said.  “This project has created a buzz of excitement in the district, and we are excited to showcase the final results to our community in 2020.”

To keep the community up to date with the progress of the project, the district has created a Capital Project 2020 page on its website, directly at, and will send out a bi-monthly newsletter to district residents.
