The School Committee conducted tours of Stoughton High School for residents on Oct. 10 and 15 in an effort to drum up support for a new high school. “At the present time the condition and innate limitations of the high school building are significantly impacting the delivery of curriculum and programming, putting our 1,100 students at a competitive disadvantage when compared to students from other schools,” said Superintendent of School Marguerite Rizzi and School Committee chairwoman Joyce Husseini in a joint statement. The New England Association of Schools and Colleges has put Stoughton on warning status because of the condition of the facility, requiring regular reports on progress toward a new building. Husseini and Rizzi are asking residents to lobby lawmakers to support the town’s plan before the Massachusetts School Building Authority. Town Meeting has approved $1 million to study a new high school.
