Unity schools pushing for loan to complete elementary school

UNITY - The Unity School Board is asking voters to approve an additional loan of $350,000 to complete the new Unity Elementary School building Saturday.

The loan is being put before voters at the annual school district meeting Saturday in the Stevens High School Auditorium in Claremont. The meeting will start at noon.

The architect of the new school building Scott Vaughn will open the new building for tours Saturday from 8 a.m. to 10 a.m.

According to Unity Elementary School Principal Chip Baldwin, the project has been plagued with site work and construction problems that lead to a redesign that triggered the need for additional funds.

Voters approved a $4.7 million bond to build the new school for kindergartners through eighth-graders at an August 2010 special meeting after state officials ordered Unity Elementary School closed due to numerous unresolved fire and building code violations.

The loan is being put before voters at Stevens High School in Claremont because until the school is completed there is no venue in town large enough to hold the anticipated crowd. The Unity School District is part of SAU 6, which serves the communities of Claremont, Cornish and Unity.
