2018 Warrant article highlights:
- Proposes a modest addition keeping the front facade of the building
- Represents roughly 40% decrease from last years warrant article
- Removes all portables and modular classrooms and adds a new classroom wing to replace these spaces
- Renovates existing spaces including nurse, administrative and special services spaces
- Expands the cafeteria and kitchen space to accommodate more students per lunch period
Goals for Renovation
- Remove portable and modular classrooms (9 classrooms)
- Why? Portables are meant to be temporary. The portables have exceeded their life expectancy, are inefﬁcient, and pose safety concerns.
- Improve safety and security of entire school
- Why? The Department of Homeland Security performed a site assessment and identified many areas of concern; some can only be addressed with a renovation.
- Increase primary education, special education and group learning space
- Why? This will allow for growth in enrollment and more ﬂexible educational spaces to support optimal instructional practices.
- Improve the function of key common areas, including the nurse’s office, administrative and meeting area, and restrooms
- Why? The nurse’s ofﬁce does not currently meet minimum health standards. Restrooms are insufﬁcient for students and staff.
School Improvement Committee
- Committee is made up of community members, town government, school board, and school staff.
- Committee has reviewed architecture plans, toured the building, discussed options, and made recommendations to the school board for 2018 warrant article.
