What If the Referendum Fails?

To answer this frequently asked question, the Board of education adopted the following statement at its Sept. 22, 2016, regular meeting: 

"The Board is committed to the 5-year facilities plan that it unanimously adopted on August 16, 2016, to add new learning spaces, improve and expand performing arts spaces, and replace the school’s two 88-year old pools. The Board does not endorse any alternative plan, and in particular the Board has no plans to pursue the options for rebuilding the existing two pools in their current location that it previously considered. If the referendum fails, the Board will begin new deliberations. The risk that one or both pools will fail beyond repair would also continue, with potential implications for the PE curriculum and aquatics programs."
