Weymouth to investigate repair, replacement of school
Weymouth school officials have taken the first step toward deciding whether to continue to maintain the Maria Weston Chapman Middle School, or replace it. Either option will cost the town millions of dollars, officials say. The School Committee voted unanimously at its last meeting to form a panel that will investigate whether it’s worth putting more money into the 51-year-old building. It needs about $8 million in repairs, but building a new school would cost much more.
