2024 School Building Advisory Committee

NEW CITIZEN-LED SCHOOL BUILDING ADVISORY COMMITTEE TO ASSIST IN DEVELOPING SCHOOL SOLUTION

The School Building Advisory Committee (SBAC) was formed after the Unified School Proposal was rejected by the voters in Nov 2023. Following the referendum’s defeat, the Town Council and School Board sought to bring the public back into the conversation about a school solution. SBAC members are volunteers from the Scarborough community who are bringing expertise and interests to the table. They are working hand-in-hand with select elected officials.

SBAC members have divided into subcommittees focusing on different aspects of school needs. Their work now is to review and analyze the materials of the previous School committee as they seek a fiscally responsible solution for Scarborough’s school deficiencies. When results from the town-wide survey are available, SBAC members will use this data to inform their analysis and recommendations for a school solution.
