Last week’s story that appeared on the front page of the Winthrop Transcript had an error in the final paragraph that summed up the school building project.
The final paragraph stated that the plan was to renovate the high school. The paragraph also contained some misinformation on the cost of the project.
In January the Winthrop School Building Assistance Committee (SBAC) voted 14-4 in favor of building a new Middle School and High School during a joint Winthrop School Building Assistance Committee/Winthrop School Committee meeting.
The plan approved by SBAC is to tear down the existing high school and build one brand new facility that would house both a high school and middle school with seperate entrances that would operate independently of each other. The cost of that project would be $82,950,000. The projected cost for Winthrop would be $42,975,000.
We apologize for the error.
