School Board Formalizes Offer of Historical Designation for Stratford Site

Arlington School Board members in December said they would back historic-status for the Stratford school site, if the parameters of such an agreement were fleshed out between the superintendent and county manager instead of by the Historical Affairs and Landmark Review Board (HALRB), according to the “Sun Gazette.”

School officials hope that bypassing HALRB will allow them to move forward without delay in renovating the Stratford facility, currently the HB Woodlawn Secondary Program, into a middle school by 2019-20.
