Final School Forum Oct. 2
Members of the School Building Committee will talk about the need for a new elementary school and the opportunity to get the state to pay for about 45 percent of the school's cost.
This information was submitted by the School Building Committee.
The Swampscott School Building Committee will hold its final Community Forum on Tuesday, Oct. 2nd, at 7 p.m. at Swampscott High School, to discuss a proposed new elementary school building.
Once again, this is an opportunity to meet members of the School Building Committee (SBC) and learn first-hand the process the Massachusetts School Building Authority (MSBA) has established to gain state funds to build a new school in the Commonwealth of Massachusetts.
Most importantly, this is an opportunity for Town Meeting members and other residents to ask questions of the SBC. According to Joe Crimmins, chairman of the School Building Committee, “We sincerely hope the Community Forum is well attended. Many Town Meeting members and others have thanked us for having these meetings prior to the Special Town Meeting scheduled for Monday, Oct. 15th”.
The School Building Committee, other school district staff and community members will be on-hand to present the status and timeline of achieving the goal of building a new elementary school. The goal of the Swampscott School Building Committee is to educate the community on the need for a new elementary school, and the opportunity the MSBA is presenting to the town.
