For more than two years, the district has been investigating acquiring land for a new school to be built in the future. Land acquisition is part of the district's Long-Range Plan for its facilities, which aims to bring all children under roof and to provide facilities for 21st century learning. Now, the district has identified a parcel that is large enough for a new junior high and is well located in the central-west portion of the district. The BOE expects to take action on a resolution to make an offer on the property at its regular meeting of April 8. If unable to reach an agreement with the property owner, Wheaton College, the Board of Education (BOE) may decide to pursue its legal right as a governmental body to purchase the property without the owner's consent through eminent domain. This process would take time, would incur legal fees and, if successful, result in the district buying the parcel at a fair value ascertained by the court. 


Please come to a community forum to learn more on Wednesday, April 3, 7:00-8:30 p.m. in the Hadley Library Media Center. For more information on facilities and land acquisition, please click here.

Hadley is hosting a free screening of the award-winning documentary "Miss Representation." The screening will be followed by a discussion led by Jodi Norgaard, creator of Go! Go! Sports Girl Dolls. Written and directed by Jennifer Siebel Newsom, the 90-minute documentary shows how mainstream media contribute to the under-representation of women in positions of power and influence in America, and challenges the media's limited and often disparaging portrayals of women and girls.
