In 2017 Farmington voters rejected a proposal to replace the existing FHS facility. While that proposed solution was defeated, the problems with the high school building did not go away.
The current facility is failing both our students and our town, and it is too expensive to maintain in its current form. There is significant public support for a new project.
Additionally, as shown in the current Farmington Public Schools Statement of Needs, a building project is still deemed necessary by the Board of Education.
