The Hardy, Hunnewell and Upham (HHU) elementary school facilities do not meet modern standards for education. The need for substantial renovation or replacement of each has been well documented. Read Project Background
The School Building Committee (SBC) was created and charged by the School Committee (SC) and the Board of Selectmen (BOS) to conduct, subject to guidance and approval by both elected boards, the feasibility process for two new or renovated elementary schools:
Hunnewell Project underway in a Town-funded process following an appropriation by Special Town Meeting in June 2018 for a feasibility study;
Hardy/Upham MSBA Project in an expected funding partnership with the Massachusetts School Building Authority (MSBA). An October 2018 Special Town Meeting appropriated funds for a feasibility study of options at both sites and schematic design of a preferred solution at one site;
Pursuant to its charge The SBC’s foremost priority shall be facilities that best serve the elementary students of Wellesley by meeting their educational programming needs in the most fiscally responsible manner.
The SBC will solicit a broad base of input and feedback from Town boards and a wide variety of constituencies and interested residents to build consensus around each project.
