Updates on 9th School Selection Process

Over the past year, the Board of Selectmen and the Brookline School Committee have been leading the final site selection process for a new elementary school in Brookline. Final site selection for a new PK-8 elementary school is currently scheduled for October 13. There will be five more public meetings in September and October to provide the public with information about the sites under consideration and to get additional community input. Currently the 9th Elementary School Site Selection Study is studying possible sites at:  the Baldwin School; Beverly Road (Baker School site); and Harvard Street (Stop & Shop site). This report will be presented publicly to the Board of Selectmen and School Committee on September 8.

Please see the current schedule of public meetings copied below. We urge parents and guardians to attend these meetings and become informed about this very important choice that is ahead for our town. A new elementary school will ease overcrowding in our schools and maintain our small class size.

For final times and locations and for more information about the process to select a site for a new PK-8 elementary school, please visit the Public Schools of Brookline website at http://www.brookline.k12.ma.us/Page/1922
