Community Meetings: South Middle School Building Project

Community meetings were held on 3/25/21 & 4/7/21 via zoom - Presented by Project Manager and Architect Hill International and Miller, Dyer Spear

By investing in building a new South Middle School, Braintree Public School will be able to continue addressing several strategic goals:

5-8 Middle School Model Benefits

Expanded Programming

Expansion of programmatic opportunities to grade 5 students, such as world languages and technical education, which are currently part of the BPS middle school curriculum.

Increased Collaboration & Curriculum Coordination

Teaming and collaboration opportunities between grade 5 and 6 teachers. Stronger curricular and instructional coordination, sequencing and alignment among grades 5-8 through horizontal and vertical teaming within the schools.

Better Coordination of Specialized Services

Better coordination of specialized services for grade 5 students with special needs and ELL students through consolidated staffing and resources realized when providing supports in two buildings as opposed to six.

Enhanced Instructional Support

Enhanced instructional supports for individual students based on deeper understandings of who they are as learners over a four year period.

Improved Parental Involvement

Improved parental investment and involvement at our middle schools with the reduction of transitions and the inclusion of younger students and their families.

Improved Communications

Enhanced educator collegiality and improved communication/collaboration with staff and families.
