The school building committee and its team of architects and engineers are getting ready to formally present the $159 million project, which was approved by voters in November 2020, to the Planning & Zoning Commission in March. The approved project includes a new middle-high school building and administrative offices. The old building will be torn down after the new high school is completed.
The Board of Education’s School Building Committee had to ask for an additional $20 million to fund the project, which was approved in a referendum in January, by about 5 percent of the town’s 21,000 eligible voters, with an outcome of 1,129-301. Voters in November 2020 approved building the new middle-high school and administrative offices for $159 million.
