Background: In late 2016, the site was vacated after engineers discovered significant structural issues that posed a safety risk. Since then Brown staff and students have shared the Barrington Elementary School campus, where they continue to operate as two separate schools.

The total budget for the new school is $30.8 million, with a planned capacity of 522 students.  For more information about this bond project visit
