Essex School Plans Add Up To Costly Options

December 4, 2023 Local News

The Essex County School Board is going over plans that include options for renovation… and perhaps consolidation… of the county’s schools. All of the proposed plans are costly, with each of them carrying a price tag ranging from $31.1 million all the way up to $42.5 million. A total of five options were on initially put on the table, and a committee has now whittled them down to three. In all the options the current high school building will remain in use as it is. You can see a complete breakdown of the costs involved along with illustrations for each of the proposed plans by visiting the School Administration Office. A meeting is being held on January 8th to hear public opinions on the plans. That meeting will be held at Essex High School in order to make sure there is enough room for all who are expected to attend.
