town_seal Caryl Community Center Project Committee

The Board of Selectmen (BOS) have concluded their search for members of the Caryl Community Center project committee. Seven individuals were appointed to the core committee at the October 19, 2018 BOS meeting. The BOS thanks all those who expressed their interest in the project, for their willingness to serve and for taking the time to meet and discuss the project.
The BOS recognizes the need to engage the broader community in this project and continues to interview for Stakeholder Roles. Stakeholders, who are critical project participants, would be expected to act as community advocates and intermediaries to their respective constituencies to ensure that the Committee hears from the community and that the community is well informed of options being considered by the committee for an eventual town vote.
Stakeholders will represent a broad spectrum of the community including but not limited to: current town departments, users of the facility and potential users such as adolescents. There will also be a Stakeholder group which will include experts that the Committee might need access to as their analytical work progresses.
The BOS believes that this combination of participants, reflecting the demographic make-up of Dover, will be able to help the town reach a consensus on the future of a community center facility. Interested individuals are always welcome to participate by attending meetings and providing their insight and suggestions.

Building Update:   We are on schedule to occupy the new building on the Lincoln side of the campus early summer 2019 and will open in the fall for the 2019 school year in the new building.  We are on budget.  In fact we have started the process of planning for the repurposing of the Lexington side of the campus.  The current 1972 building will be torn down.  It is anticipated that a state of the art Athletic facility will be built for the school and our District.  We are also looking into public / private partnership opportunities for the school and the District that are compatible with our educational purpose.

Please link onto our latest Video update created by Andrew Mudge of Black Kettle Films a Dover Sherborn High School graduate: 

Just this week the United States Department of Education announced that Minuteman was named a National Blue Ribbon School “for high progress and narrowing proficiency gaps on state tests. Minuteman’s model of integrating academic rigor with career and technical education (CTE) allows students to accelerate their learning, grasp their full potential, and achieve a competitive advantage.”
