Goffstown School Board seeking building committee members
GOFFSTOWN — The School Board is looking for community members to serve on the building committee as it moves forward with expansion projects for the Bartlett and Maple Avenue elementary schools.
According to a release provided by the district, no previous experience is necessary, but some familiarity with the buildings and the projects would be helpful.
The purpose of the committee will be to educate and inform the public about the projects, which were rejected by voters in 2011.
“We need to get people into our schools to see how tight they are,” said SAU 19 Superintendent Stacy Buckley. “We have zero space.”
Currently, Buckley said she is budgeting for additional portable classrooms that will be set up adjacent to the schools if the March warrant article to fund the renovations doesn’t pass.
“The portables aren’t a horrible educational environment, but they aren’t ideal,” Buckley said. “You shouldn’t have to put your coat on to go to the bathroom.”
Buckley said portable classrooms do not contribute to the unity of the schools.
The time commitment of the committee will vary over the next several months as the School Board prepares for a possible bond vote in March 2013.
Those interested in serving on the committee should forward a letter of interest to Stacy Buckley, Superintendent of Schools, SAU #19, 11 School Street, Goffstown, NH 03045 or by email at firstname.lastname@example.org .
Closing date for interested parties will be Friday, Oct. 19.
