The Newmarket School Board formed the Facilities Committee in June 2015 to consider comprehensive long term solutions for the District's facilities needs, including both the Jr./Sr. High School and the Elementary School. The Committee will work with an architect to develop possible solutions for recommendation to the School Board. Key to the process will be obtaining input from all stakeholders, including educators and the community.
The initial task of the Committee was to interview architects for a recommendation to the School Board. After an extensive vetting process, on October 1, 2015, the School Board approved the Facilities Committee's recommendation to retain Banwell Architects of Lebanon, New Hampshire.
Based on educational specifications arrived at through both internal review and recommendations of an independent consultant (Dr. Mark Joyce), the Banwell firm will analyze the existing facilities and recommend possible long term solutions. As any solution will involve choices, the Facilities Committee will seek input from educators and the public to arrive at a final recommendation to the School Board.
