Superintendent’s Vision For Framingham Involves A One-Room Schoolhouse Model

FRAMINGHAM – Framingham Superintendent of Schools Bob Tremblay, teamed up with School Committee Chair Heather Connolly, and Framingham Teachers Association President Christine Mulroney and Vice President Lori Brockway to produce a welcome back video for staff, parents and students.

The video was published today, August 30, when more than 9,000 students had their first day of school for the 2017-18 school year.

Tremblay said “education happens in cycles.”

He said the what’s next for the Framingham School is a trip “back to the one-room schoolhouse” theoretically.

“The idea of bringing our students together in a single place to meet their needs,” said Tremblay.

The video, filmed in part at Old Sturbridge Village, was produced in English, Spanish, and Portuguese.

Watch the video below.

Tremblay began as Superintendent in April 2016. Thris spring, he did a residency program – spending one week at each school including Framingham High and the three middle schools. He will continue the residency program this fall. After which, he plans to work on a district strategic plan.

Also today, Tremblay visited 14 of the schools with Framingham School Resource Officer Kathy McGrath.
