After a year of work, the Facilities Assessment Committee made its presentation to the school committee on July 13, sharing data collected throughout the study and identifying six options to address the facilities needs of the district.  The Facilities Assessment Committee recommended pursuing Option 4 in this presentation, and suggested that the School Committee share all six options with the community through public forums and hearings held throughout the fall and winter of the 2017-2018 school year.  The School Committee approved the formation of a Facilities Committee to continue this work and will be holding public forums throughout the 2017-2018 school year to explain the results of the study, share the options studied, and hear feedback from the community.  The public forum schedule will be as follows:
Round One (to present results of the study, options considered, and the recommended plan):
Forum I:  Wednesday, October 25 at 6:30 p.m. at Harrison Middle School (Cafeteria)
Forum II:  Wednesday, November 15 at 8:00 a.m. at Town Hall (Community Room) 
Forum III:  Thursday, November 16 at 6:30 p.m. at Harrison Middle School (Cafeteria)
Round Two (after considering input from Round One and refining plans):
Forum IV:  Tuesday, February 13 at 6:30 p.m. at Yarmouth High School (Cafeteria)
