WILMINGTON, MA — Voters will decide the fate of the proposed new Town Hall/School Administration Building at the Special Town Meeting on Saturday, November 19 at 9am in the Joanne Benton Auditorium at Wilmington High School.
Superintendent Dr. Glenn Brand and Wilmington Community Television recently created an informational video highlighting the deficiencies of the School Administration’s current arrangement.
The Central Office staff — which consists of Human Resources, Finances, Technology, Student Support Services, Curriculum & Instruction, Transportation and The Office of the Superintendent — are currently spread out across four buildings around town — the Roman House, the High School, the basement of the West Intermediate, and the Arts Center. A new Town Hall/School Administration Building would bring all approximately 30 staff members under the same roof.
Brand also notes that the Roman House, which was built in 1900, lacks the necessary space for meetings, storage (filing cabinets currently in the bathrooms), and confidential conversations, and is inaccessible to residents who must use ramps or elevators.
