Michael Delahanty, Salem Superintendent of Schools, announced that the Salem School Board will host a public forum regarding a revised Facilities Renovation Project to be proposed for voter consideration in March, 2013.

The meeting will be held in the Television Studio at Salem High School on Monday, Oct. 29, beginning at 7 p.m. The forum is open to parents of current and entering students as well as interested citizens. All residents are encouraged to attend.

The School Board is proposing a renovation project to address facility deficiencies at two elementary schools, Fisk School and Soule School.

School district officials, joined by Chris Drobat of Lavallee/Brensinger Architects and Gino Baroni of Trident Project Advantage Group, will provide a perspective of the Facilities Master Plan and options for the upcoming project.  

Board members will review recent enrollment projection information that influenced a decision to renovate two rather than three elementary schools.

Much has been discussed about this proposal, and it is always important to learn the pertinent facts. After a brief presentation, questions and comments from audience members will be welcomed.

If the school board listen to the people last year the Soule and the Fisk would have been half way renovated by now. But some people have to learn the hard way.

The way this budget process is going I don't think we'll ever see school renovations in Salem.

Get the high school done and revisit the elementary at a later date. It needs it the most and would help the entire community!
