WALLINGFORD — A survey of more than 2,500 people with connections to the town’s school system found that nearly 80 percent favored some form of significant renovation of district school buildings.

The results of the survey, conducted May 23- July 15, were presented to the Board of Education Monday night at Town Hall. The results were presented to the board by Rebecca Augur, a principal partner with the Cheshire-based Milone & MacBroom consulting firm.

Milone & MacBroom has been advising the board since last year on district facilities needs with school enrollments expected to decline. The firm initially presented six options involving all of the district’s schools and the board had reduced the number of choices to three by the beginning of April.

The first of the three options called for maintaining the district’s two high schools and two middle schools and making only selected capital improvements, at a cost of $15.6 million.
