The group will be chaired by a School Committee member.

The focus of the new Early Childhood Working group will be to present to Town Meeting a proposed solution to space needs endorsed by this group.  This will be done in the following manner:

  • Continue with a Geotechnical study and, if necessary, a plan for a traffic study for Oakland Rd. site
  • Identify a communication plan on how to inform, update, and get feedback from the community.
  • Review all options explored to date and reconsider.  
  • Identify a finite amount of time to brainstorm other solutions.
  • Vet all solutions, prioritize, and then make a recommendation to Town Meeting.
