Manchester, Essex

Community survey results to be displayed

The Manchester Essex Regional School Committee plans to receive a presentation on the results of a community survey on elementary facilities at its Oct. 15 meeting. Studies in 2011-2012 and in spring 2013 confirmed that the district’s elementary school buildings — one in Manchester and the other in Essex — had exceeded their useful lives, and the community survey is part of the planning process as the district addresses future needs. The meeting is scheduled for 7 p.m. at the Middle-High School library. In addition, the district’s Elementary Facilities Task Force plans to conduct focus groups with constituents from Essex and Manchester in October and November. For more information, go to
