Facilities plan may affect fifth-graders
Could Cornwall’s fifth-graders return to elementary school one day? That’s something the Board of Education will consider as it develops a facilities plan.
The board met with architect David Sammel on Tuesday night at the tail end of a four-hour meeting. Although Mr. Sammel had given the board members a report on projected costs, he didn’t discuss prices with them. Instead, he focused on some key issues that had come up in his meetings with focus groups. One of those issues was returning to the old configuration where students didn’t move up to the middle school until sixth grade. Page 1

Bill Braine, chairman of the committee, said phase one encompasses the area between Union Avenue and the municipal lot, including Bridge Street on the other side of the road. Page 1
