School officials didn't specify how much the donation was for, but it's quite large and generous.

On Tuesday, Shenendehowa Central School District announced that, if approved by voters, they'd add a 150K square-foot building on 11 acres to their already sprawling Clifton Park campus.

Some reports say the property is valued at $20M.

School officials said on Tuesday that if this is approved by voters, there would be big changes to pre-K and kindergarten.

  • Create a full-day kindergarten center

  • Move District Office Services: Human Resources, Curriculum, and Instruction, Special Education, Food Services, Business and Finance, Superintendent’s Office- eliminating the need for the current facility and creating an opportunity to sell and proceeds used to offset renovation of the newly acquired facility
