SBAC Update

Dear Cape Elizabeth Community,

Here are some important updates from the Cape Elizabeth School Building Advisory Committee (SBAC).

1.  Public Forum - We invite you to join us at the upcoming Public Forum on Thursday, April 4th at 6:00 PM at the Cape Elizabeth Town Hall to discuss the three design concepts for our school buildings. More info:

2.  School Tour - Additionally, we're hosting a guided School Tour on Saturday, April 6th, beginning at 9:00 AM at the Pond Cove Elementary School entrance. This is your opportunity to walk through the current Elementary and Middle School spaces and understand the infrastructural needs first hand and the potential for transformation.

3.  School Needs in the Cape Courier - This week, the Cape Courier (March 27th edition) featured a detailed overview of our schools' infrastructural and educational needs as identified by the SBAC. For those who haven't had the opportunity to read it, the article offers valuable insight into the pressing necessities we're working to address. You can find the article here.

4.  Upcoming Survey - The SBAC is finalizing the contents of a town-wide survey to gather representative feedback on the three school design concepts. Look for the survey in the mail the week of April 8th. There will also be an online version of the survey. A prompt response will be requested, as we aim to summarize the results of the survey by the end of the month. We’ll be sending out more information on this soon.

5.  Final Option - On May 9th, the SBAC will finalize its recommendation for the Town Council and School Board, choosing one design option. Your input has been, and continues to be, a cornerstone of our decision-making process. Please make sure to share your thoughts on the proposed options; your insights are invaluable as we make this pivotal decision for our community's educational future.

Thank you for your active participation in shaping the future of education in Cape Elizabeth.

SBAC Community Member and Chair of the Communications Subcommitte
