SCARBOROUGH — The Wentworth Intermediate Building Committee has reached consensus that a new school should be constructed.

The committee is scheduled to update the Town Council and the Board of Education on its work Wednesday, said Christopher Brownsey, the board chairman and a building committee member. The committee started meeting last month.

The building committee will likely make its formal recommendation about new construction to the board next month, Brownsey said.

In 2006, voters rejected a borrowing proposal that combined $38.3 million to replace Wentworth and $16.5 million to renovate Scarborough Middle School.
