2.    To review thoroughly with the Superintendent and the School Committee the educational requirements in relation to school buildings.

3.    To review previous studies and initiate needed studies with or without consultative assistance.

4.      To employ the services of architects and cost estimators and such other professional assistance as it may deem necessary.


Staff Planning


Arrangements will be made by the Superintendent, working through principals, for the school staff to contribute in the planning of new school buildings. Teachers will be given the opportunity to submit suggestions for possible inclusion in the educational specifications.
