Committee is taking specific steps prescribed by the state process. Most notably, funding for a
“feasibility study” was approved by Town Meeting in May 2018, and the study is expected to be complete in early 2020. The feasibility study will recommend a “preferred solution” to address West’s facility needs—either a building renovation or a total replacement—to be considered by the community at the 2020 Town Meeting. This step would also require a debt exclusion vote of the community shortly after Town Meeting.
The Andover High School Facility Study Committee was formed in January 2017 and has been conducting a preliminary feasibility study with the architecture firm HMFH. The Study Committee has developed many options for improvements at Andover High, ranging from $7 million worth of safety and security upgrades to over $200 million for a new school building.  Additionally, the Study Committee recommended to the School Committee that an SOI for AHS be submitted to the MSBA in order to pursue the potential option for state partnership. The SOI was submitted in April 2018. For both of these projects, community feedback is critical. Meetings of both committees are open to the public and notifications are posted to the Town of Andover website. Meetings are also videotaped and can be viewed from the Andover TV website. 
 Details on these options can be found in presentations on the AHS Facility Study Group website: http://www.aps1.net/1932/Data-and-Presentations
