The polls will be open Tuesday from noon to 9 p.m. in the gymnasium of the Susquehanna Valley High School on Conklin Road in Conklin.
School district officials say the planned work would not increase the local tax levy. State aid would cover nearly 84 percent of the project cost. Capital reserve funds will be used for the remaining local share.
The district is planning to make classroom renovations and communications upgrades. Some renovations are to be made at the Brookside Elementary School and at the Richard T. Stank Middle School.
The proposed projects also include replacement of the high school's grass field with an artificial turf multi-purpose field. The track also would be reconstructed and the scoreboard would be replaced.
The district also plans to replace a bus lift at its bus maintenance garage.
In addition to the capital project measure, residents also will consider a plan to create a new capital reserve fund.
