However, a 2/3 vote of the special town meeting (STM) is required for passage.
The next step for the town will be to see if more than 50% of residents vote in favor of the new school on 11/15 at the ballot election, which would satisfy one of the two criteria required to move forward with the new school process.
If the 11/15 ballot succeeds, then, those in charge of the new school at Wheelock campus effort will need to decide whether they feel enough town residents want to hold a second special town meeting (STM), as the process allows, to see if at that second STM whether 2/3 of voters will both attend and support the new school. We had less than a 25% turn out of registered voters yesterday.
A large plurality favoring the new school at the 11/15 ballot would certainly send a strong message to the new school at the Wheelock campus leaders that residents want a second chance via a second STM.
