In December 2018, we will find out if Andover High has been accepted into the MSBA program. If Andover is accepted, the next steps are strictly prescribed by the state, and the next community decision point will be a request at Town Meeting to fund the required feasibility study.
If Andover High is not accepted into the MSBA program, there will need to be a decision to either pursue a building project without MSBA assistance or to resubmit a request to the MSBA for consideration in 2019.
If the community favors improving Andover High using town financial resources only (no MSBA partnership), there will need to be a decision about which option should be pursued
(addition/partial renovation, addition/full renovation, or new school), and design funding would be requested at Town Meeting.
The community is being asked to weigh in on these issues, either at the October community forum, by attending facility committee meetings, or by reaching out to members of the facility committee or School Committee.
