Yes for Fuller! was created by a group of Framingham residents in order to advocate for a new middle school in the Framingham School District. In 2013, the Massachusetts School Building Authority (MSBA) agreed Fuller was at the end of its useful life and invited Framingham into their selective process to access funding. The MSBA is the state agency charged with overseeing and supporting school improvement projects with state grants and has rigorous standards for communities to balance affordability with each community’s infrastructure needs.
In recent years, a School Building Committee comprised of parents, teachers, engineers, alongside government and elected officials, has met more than 25 times in public meetings with public input considered to propose, revise, and finalize plans for Fuller. The new building will replace an aging facility not currently supporting our students, educators, and community. A new Fuller will be built to last 70-100 years, was designed to meet educational requirements, will be energy efficient, and reduce neighborhood traffic
Yes for Fuller! is a fiscally responsible, community driven initiative that will invest in our future. Guiding Yes for Fuller! is a team of volunteers which includes parents and grandparents of public school students, current and former elected officials and new voices who support education in our community.
