CALAIS – City Manager Mike Ellis said school enrollment is up and the increase is pushing current school resources to the limit.
Ellis said the last school expansion was 17 years ago and that the 2003 expansion was never completed because of lack of funding,
“Obviously, what you’re going to be using the classrooms for might have changed. I don’t think it was an elementary school, like kindergarten-level expansion is what they were looking at. So along with that comes some design changes,” he said.
Ellis said school and city officials want to put a plan in place for expanding and then they can seek funding for the construction.
