Stage II Application to the R.I. Department of Education

During Stage II, the district works with an architectural and engineering team from Studio JAED to propose a preferred option for the elementary school building needs. The team develops a schematic design that provides dependable cost estimates, a project budget, and project descriptions for the School Building Authority Advisory Board and the Council on Elementary and Secondary Education to consider.

The components of the application are being assembled and will be complete prior to the February 1st deadline. An important component is School Committee support for the application submission, evidenced by a vote authorizing the superintendent to submit the completed application. In order to provide the School Committee with enough information about the application to make this decision, information about the application has been summarized in this report posted on the Elementary Reconfiguration site.
