M.S.A.D. 75 High School Project Public Forum


On August 3, 2016, M.S.A.D. No. 75 will hold a Public Forum to discuss the Mt. Ararat High School Construction Project. The meeting will take place from 6:30 to 8 p.m. in the High School Commons. The public is invited to hear an update on construction project progress and to provide feedback concerning various projects not funded by the State of Maine.

        The State of Maine will pay for the cost of state approved items.  Additional features are at the cost and discretion of the District. Options include additional local funding and fund-raising opportunities.

    Unfunded projects fall into three categories; those related to athletics, academic classroom projects, and high-performance building additions. Attendees will be asked to provide feedback on the projects and available funding options.

    The scope and size of these projects range from ten additional classrooms for teachers at an approximate cost of $2,022,000, to a second scoreboard at the expanded gym, at an estimated price of $15,000. Each project fills a specific need for the quality education of M.S.A.D. No. 75 students.

The Building Committee and Sub-committees have continued to meet.  We are closing in on a specific scheme, and each meeting brings another refinement in the placement of specific classrooms and other areas…It is so very rewarding to see visual representations of what has been conversations and ideas until now! The commitment of community members serving on the various subcommittees is remarkable and greatly appreciated.

    A list of projects by category is provided below. The cost associated with each project is very preliminary and is meant as a general indication of the estimated budget per plan.

    I strongly urge you to attend the Forum on August 3rd, and help us to determine the sort of school our communities will provide for students over the next several decades.

        

 

With Appreciation,

 

Brad Smith

Superintendent of Schools
