High School Building Committee Tackles New Questions

The committee has posted new, more comprehensive, FAQs on its website.


The committee overseeing the construction of a new $92 million has posted a new series of FAQs on its website.

The new FAQs page offers a more intensive look at how the project was developed, what its costs are, what factors could increase those costs, what the educational specifications will be in the new school and what the cost of the project will mean to taxpayers.

You can view a PDF of the FAQs above.

Voters last June approved spending $92 million to build a new high school to address numerous educational deficiencies identified in the current high school.

The project calls for a three-story, 211,000-square-foot building that would be built on the site of the current high school on New England Road.

The state has approved reimbursing the town 31 percent, or $28.6 million, of the project’s costs, leaving the town to pay for the remaining $63.6 million.

The timeline for the project calls for construction to begin next year. Once the construction is completed the existing high school building will be demolished.

The town has been considering, in one form or another, building a new high school for nearly 10 years.
