Administration Eyeing Changes To Framingham High To Deal With Increased Enrollments

PLEASE SHARE

FRAMINGHAM – The Framingham Public Schools administration is eyeing several changes at Framingham High to deal with the forecasted enrollment increase over the next several years.

An enrollment forecasting and space study was conducted during the 2018-2019 school year, that predicted an increased student enrollment for the next three years, with the peak anticipated for the 2023-2024 school year.

For the 2020-21 school year, the district plans to “focus on using the existing building as-is, maximizing efficiencies in schedule and class location.”

That includes analyzing existing class size, schedules, and locations, reassigning office space, and exploring the effectiveness of decoupling teachers and classes.

The following school year (2021-2022), the district plans to “identify and implement small building projects that will maximize the use of existing
spaces” at Framingham High.

The top priority is to move the district-wide technology department from the basement of Framingham High to a new location, according to a presentation that will be made to the School Committee on Wednesday night, April 15.

Other plans include “re-partitioning classrooms, reconfiguration of existing systems to repurpose spaces, reconfiguration to improve building circulation.

Finally, in the 2022-2023 school year, the district, according to the report, plans to “study and implement the need for larger building projects” including a large-scale ” interior reconfiguration” and “addition or expansion to existing” high school.

The School Committee plans to discuss this at its meeting on Wednesday, April 15. The remote meeting starts at 7 p.m.

Discussion of this item is scheduled for about 7:45 p.m.

The meeting can be viewed Live on The Government Channel: Comcast 99,
RCN 13/HD613, Verizon/Fios 42 and on Facebook on the Framingham Public
