Windham resident Carolyn Therrien wrote an informative article raising some concerns regarding the planning process for the proposed new school project.
It is clear that she has done some extensive research on this subject — and reveals information that was not previously known to our WTC group. Mrs. Therrien reveals her concerns regarding the fact that we are again being asked to approve the same project that was rejected last year by voters, as well as a lack of transparency during the selection process for the architect and construction firms, should this project be approved by voters on March 12th.

In a flyer being handed out by the WINS group, it says the Windham Middle School is “Unapproved”! WRONG. I checked with the NH DOE, http://www.education.nh.gov/program/school_approval/public_approval.htmhttp://www.education.nh.gov/program/school_approval/public_approval.htm IT IS APPROVED!

With Windham growth we became one of the heavily taxed towns in NH due to an escalating school budget.

We are the taxpayers who paid for the Golden Brook School, Center School Addition, Middle School, High School and Kindergarten. Our children attended Windham Schools.

If my grandmother was alive and living in Windham, she would look at the School Board Article #2 (the one to spend $51 million dollars to build a 7-8 grade middle school) and say “It’s not right. It just isn’t right!”
