TOWN-WIDE SURVEY – New Middle School Building

The Middle School Building Committee invites you to participate in a TOWN-WIDE SURVEY on the design, function, and total project cost of a new middle school building. 

The project is currently in the Feasibility phase and as it moves into Schematic Design, community input is critical.

Please click here to share your feedback in a 5-10 minute survey.  The survey will be available through Monday, April 5, but we suggest you do it right away! 

It is critical that we collect feedback from as many residents as possible. Can you help us spread the word?  After you fill out your survey, please forward it to friends and neighbors.  While we can reach parents in the school district easily, we need broad input from the entire community.  In this effort, we ask for your help. 

Take the SURVEY, and Pass it On!  

Note: Even if you have already emailed the Building Committee, Select Board, or Finance Committee, please share your input here also as the survey is the most effective way of aggregating data. 

Thank you for your help in defining our community’s needs in a new middle school building!

Committee Charge

The Concord Middle School Building Committee is charged by the Select Board to undertake a Feasibility Study to explore the construction of a single new Middle School Building to replace the two existing facilities. The Committee is also charged to begin the schematic design process for a new school building based on the findings of the Feasibility Study. Funding for the Feasibility and Schematic Design was approved under Article 14 at the 2019 Annual Town Meeting. It is anticipated that the Town will be asked at a later time to approve full design and construction funding for the new school and, should such funding be approved, the Committee shall anticipate serving as the construction oversight body as well. The Committee has final authority on all design decisions and will make recommendations to the Town Manager on all financial, contractual and schedule matters. The Middle School Building Committee shall be the point of contact for all community groups for all issues regarding the project. The Committee shall ensure community engagement throughout the planning and execution of the final design and construction. It is the expectation that there will be multiple opportunities throughout the process to solicit community feedback.
