As some are familiar, a Master Plan Facilities Committee was established to “study the district’s facilities and make recommendations to the Board of Education for a Five Year Capital Improvement Plan”. It was established three years ago in January of 2008.
At this time, the committee concludes that Meagher Elementary School be closed and Sophie Finn Elementary School be converted into an alternative educational center for High School students.
There is one last public comment opportunity on the subject after the MPFC makes it’s recommendations.
Wednesday, March 2nd, Board of Education facility at 61 Crown Street
4:30pm: The Master Plan Facilities Committee will make their recommendations to the BOE. There is no public comment at this time.
6:00pm: The Board of Education Executive Committee

I recommend that you attend the 4:30pm meeting if you wish to speak later on. If you do go, please post your experience in the comment section of this post.
Future meetings for the Master Plan Facilities Committee are Wednesday’s at 4:30pm April 6, May 4, June 1 all at the Crown Street location.
