Abington: Joint meeting of School Committee and Selectmen to discuss building new school

Abington Selectmen and the town’s School Committee will hold a joint meeting tonight to talk about the possibility of building a new school in town.

At the meeting, Scott Dunlap of A-I-3 Architects and Abington’s Project Manager, Mary Mahoney of KBA Architects, will summarize the past year’s worth of studies, building inspections, site evaluations, and present some alternatives for future study.

The Board of Selectmen and School Committee will be asked to vote to authorize the filing of its current Feasibility Study reports and supporting documents to the Massachusetts School Building Authority for their preliminary review and comment.

At this point, no final determination will be made as to what type of school, or where such a school would be located, will be considered.

Tonight’s meeting is at 6:30 at the Abington town offices.

About David Skill

Dave Skill’s radio career began in the fall of 1964 when he arrived on the campus of Holy Cross College in Worcester, MA. Dave barely got his bags unpacked when he paid a visit to WCHC, the campus radio station. And, before he knew it, he was spending so much time as a disc jockey and news writer/reporter, it seemed like he was majoring in “radio” and minoring in academics at “The Cross”. As you might imagine, his grades reflected it! During his junior and senior years, he also worked weekends in news and as a disc jockey at WNEB, the CBS radio affiliate in Worcester at the time.
