Who makes the final decisions regarding a solution for the Essex Elementary School?

Ultimately, Town Meetings and the voters in Essex and Manchester make a final decision about the scope of a project, including costs and which option to pursue. Throughout the Feasibility Study period, the School Committee and the School Building Committee will keep the communities apprised of the plan, as well as provide opportunities for public participation and input. We recognize that it is critical to gain public participation and input and secure voter support for any school building project to be successful.
