North Providence residents to vote on three new schools

NORTH PROVIDENCE, R.I. (WLNE) — Part of back to school season will include a push for three new elementary schools.

Voters in North Providence will be asked to approve a referendum vote that would finance three new schools.

That will be on the ballot in November.

Of the five elementary schools in town, Stephen Olney Elementary and McGuire Elementary are already new.

Superintendent Joseph Goho said teachers at the two new buildings have the best resources for high-quality instruction.

“I just think the research is really clear about going to brand new buildings and the impact that top of the line facilities can have on teaching and learning and student achievement,” Goho said.
