Parish site considered for school

School officials in Reading are preparing to seek community feedback for the plan to convert a former St. Agnes parish school building to a town kindergarten and preschool facility.

The plan sets the stage for a Special Town Meeting in September to consider authorizing the estimated $9 million to $10 million needed to fund the acquisition and renovations to the building. The appropriation would be contingent on passage of a debt exclusion, or temporary tax increase, at a special election in October.
