On December 19th, the Council on Elementary and Secondary Education unanimously approved South Kingstown’s Necessity of Construction Application – Stage II.

Of almost equal importantance, the Council approved the full amount sought by the Town of South Kingstown – $150,000,000, and a maximum reimbusement rate of 55% if all applicable bonuses are met.

School Department Funds Planning / Design Prior to Bond Vote

On Tuesday Nov. 28, the School Committee unanimously approved a Not to Exceed amount of $350,000 to fund additional planning and concept design of the proposed new South Kingstown High School.

This strategic move allows the School Department to assume the financial risk of this early work. This decision will keep the project on an aggressive schedule, mitigating the downstream effects of inflation.
