Riverhead school board members and the public are expected to get an update on ongoing capital improvement projects within the district at tonight’s school board meeting.

Representatives from both BBS Architects of Patchogue and Triton Construction of Garden City will update the school board on the $78.3 million bond project approved by voters in 2011, according to the agenda.

The school board held a ribbon-cutting ceremony in March at Phillips Avenue Elementary School in Riverside, unveiling a new library and media center in the school. The ceremony marked the first completed facility upgrade paid through the bond.

In addition to the construction update, the school board will hold a public hearing to discuss the proposed 2013-14 budget and give school board candidates Christopher Dorr, Jeffrey Falisi and Amelia Lantz an opportunity to speak, according to the agenda.

The public portion of the school board’s meeting starts at 7 p.m.
