The students at Nauset Regional High School are moving one step closer to a new school, even if that step means going to classes in a trailer for two years.
At the Jan. 13 meeting of the Nauset Regional School Committee, Director of Finance Giovanna Venditti said the school building committee had reached an agreement to purchase 37 modular classroom trailers from the town of Lincoln.
Venditti and school committee member Griffin Ryder, members of the negotiating team, initially offered $500,000 and agreed on $550,000. Venditti said that she had been prepared to go higher.
“Gio was a hard negotiator,” Ryder said.
The building committee will next hire a contractor to go to Lincoln, disassemble the modulars, and bring them back to Eastham by the end of June, when demolition of parts of the old school is scheduled, said building committee chair Greg Levasseur. Existing hookups for electricity and septic are already in place from a previous project when modular buildings were needed. “I have fond memories of taking calculus in those modulars,” said Ryder.
School committee member Josh Stewart asked the building committee to arrange the trailers as thoughtfully as possible. “It probably will be the most stable campus zone for the next three to four years, and in many places they just get dropped and lined up and tightly packed in,” he said. “The kids and teachers would appreciate whatever we can do to create their own little campus area.”
New Principal Search Committee
Nauset Regional High School is looking for volunteers to join the search committee for a new principal. All community members are invited to indicate their interest. Participation in the committee will require some weekend and evening hours. The process is expected to run until mid or late February. To join, visit tinyurl.com/2p8wax2n.
The school is also conducting a survey to determine what kind of experience and qualities the community deems important for a new principal. The online survey is at tinyurl.com/2p9cj2z5. —Cam Blair
