Concord K-8 construction plan approved

The Concord School Committee voted to support the Master Plan to rebuild the Concord K-8 schools to bring them up to modern standards. The plan includes a new school to replace the 50-year-old Alcott Elementary School and extensive renovations for the two other aging elementary schools. Proposed renovations to the Sanborn Middle School would accommodate a combined middle school program in place of the two existing middle schools.

Concord taxpayers will be asked to vote in March for design funds for the construction project and will be given a choice to vote separately for the elementary school construction projects and/or the middle school project. The entire project for the K-8 schools is expected to cost approximately $50 million. However, such projects are eligible for state reimbursement so costs for Concord are expected to total $21.5 million. If design funds are approved, a vote for building funds would be set at a later date.
