The Enterprise — Melissa Hale-Spencer

Ready to answer questions: At the dais for Tuesday’s informational session on a proposed $18.2 million upgrade to Guilderland schools are, from left, Superintendent Marie Wiles; Assistant Superintendent for Business Neil Sanders; Daniel Woodside, the managing principal with CSArch Architecture, which is handling the project; Clifford Nooney, the district’s director of physical plant management; Alicia Rizzo, Lynnwood Elementary School principal; Michael Laster, Farnsworth Middle School principal; and Thomas Lutsic, Guilderland High school principal. Michael Andrews, project architect, was also on the panel. Amy McGeady, who handles public relations for the district, is at the podium behind them, soliciting questions from the sparse audience. Projected on the screen in back is a picture of what Sanders described as “alligatored” pavement in need of replacement.
