Dale Street School Project Update

PRIORITY DECISIONS MADE 
On August 27, 2020, the School Committee voted unanimously to select the 4-5 grade configuration. It was ultimately decided that the 4-5 grade configuration was the most viable option for the current economic climate. 

On September 16, 2020, the School Building Committee voted to recommend the selection of the Wheelock site for the location of the new school. Of the alternatives presented on the Wheelock site, the committee selected  G1 Alternative as the Preferred Schematic Option.

The School Building Committee will now recommend the Preferred Schematic Option to the Board of Selectmen on September 22, 2020 at 7PM.
