Primary School Building Project

DISCLAIMER: The timeline for this project timeline is going to be reworked due to COVID-19


New Primary School Update - February 2. 2021

The MSAD #51 Board of Directors is under contract with an abutting landowner to the campus for purchase of land to support a new primary school in order to meet projected enrollment increases over the next 8-10 years.  Oak Point Associates, the architectural firm hired to develop a concept design for the new school, presented a first rough draft of a design to the Board on February 1 (see diagram below).  

The proposed new school would be built for 450 students in grades Pre-K, kindergarten, and grade 1. Next steps include continued development of the concept design that will be shared with the community later this spring.  Pending Board review and approval of a final concept design in June, a referendum would be scheduled for September which will include construction of a new primary school and the purchase of land abutting the campus to support the school.  There may be other items for campus improvement that are included in the final  referendum package in order to make building a new school on campus feasible.

Here is a rough draft of two possible concept designs for a proposed new primary school on the existing MSAD #51 school campus:
