Welcome to the Braintree Public Schools!

The Braintree Public School (BPS) system services over 5,800 students from pre-Kindergarten to 12th grade in one preschool center based at Braintree High School, a Kindergarten center, six neighborhood elementary schools (all serving grades 1-5 with five housing one section of full day Kindergarten), two grade 6-8 middle schools and one grade 9-12 high school. Beyond the academic day and year, students are able to access multiple opportunities in academic and social clubs and activities, visual and performing arts, athletics, and extended year support services and programs.

The BPS has an exceptional history of student performance: by almost any measure, Braintree students achieve at very high levels. With a complete and total focus on providing high quality instruction that is personalized for every child, Braintree students are the direct beneficiaries of a school-community dedicated to providing outstanding teachers, extremely favorable class sizes (14:1), and academic support services that are second to none. All of our schools are designated Level I status by the Department of Elementary and Secondary Education (DESE), with the exception of Braintree High School (BHS), which is identified as a Level II school. BHS was recently named by Newsweek Magazine as one of the top 500 high schools in the country, reaching number 15 out of over 200 high schools in the Commonwealth of Massachusetts.

The BPS is currently engaged in reimagining and reconstructing its five year strategic plan. In an effort to achieve even greater focus and become more effective in addressing the needs of our students and our changing school-community, we have identified four (4) strategic goal areas: (1) Curriculum, Instruction and Assessment; (2) Culture of Learning and Innovation; (3) Family and Community Engagement, and (4) Wellness. Through these goals we endeavor to prepare our students for a complex and changing world, think critically and creatively, analyze and evaluate information, solve complex problems, and collaborate and communicate effectively. Beyond those skill sets, we believe our children need to develop the necessary habits of body and mind to stay physically, socially and emotionally well throughout their lives.


We are happy to welcome all permanent residents of the Town of Braintree to the Braintree Schools.

Except for kindergarten, or those students in need of specialized services, all students are assigned to a school based on grade level and street address. If you are new to town and want to see which school your child will be assigned to please see our transportation directory.

How do I know if my children qualify as homeless, migrant or runaway?

Do the members of your household lack a permanent address? Are you staying together in a shelter, hotel, or other temporary housing arrangement? Does your family relocate on a seasonal basis? Are any children living with you who have chosen to leave their prior family or household? If you believe children in your household meet these descriptions and haven’t been told your children will get free meals, please call or e-mail Jennifer Fay, 781-380-0130, jennifer.fay@braintreeschools.org.

Do I need to fill out an application for each child? 

No. Use one Free and Reduced Price School Meals Application for all students in your household. We cannot approve an application that is not complete, so be sure to fill out all required information. Return the completed application to: Braintree School Nutrition Services, Sarah Coughlin, 128 Town Street, Braintree, MA 02184.

Should I fill out an application if I received a letter this school year saying my children are already approved for free meals?

No, but please read the letter you got carefully and follow the instructions. If any children in your household were missing from your eligibility notification, contact Sarah Coughlin, School Food & Nutrition Services, 128 Town Street Braintree, MA 02184, 781-848-4000 ext. 7045 or sarah.coughlin@braintreeschools.org immediately.

My child's application was approved last year.  Do I need to fill out a new one? 

Yes.  Your child’s application is only good for that school year and for the first few days of this school year.  You must send in a new application unless the school told you that your child is eligible for the new school year. 

I get WIC.  Can my children get free meals?   

Children in households participating in WIC may be eligible for free or reduced price meals.  Please send in a completed application.

Will the information I give be checked?

Yes. We may also ask you to send written proof of the household income you report.

If I don’t qualify now, may I apply later?

Yes, you may apply at any time during the school year.  For example, children with a parent or guardian who becomes unemployed may become eligible for free and reduced price meals if the household income drops below the income limit.

What if I disagree with the school’s decision about my application?

You should talk to school officials. Contact Sarah Coughlin at 781-848-4000 x7045 or sarah.coughlin@braintreeschools.org. You also may ask for a hearing by calling or writing to: Ed Cronin, Business Manager, 348 Pond St., Braintree, MA 02184, 781-794-8482, or edward.cronin@braintreeschools.org.

May I apply if someone in my household is not a U.S. citizen?

Yes. You, your children, or other household members do not have to be U.S. citizens to apply for free or reduced price meals. 

What if my income is not always the same?

List the amount that you normally receive. For example, if you normally make $1000 each month, but you missed some work last month and only made $900, put down that you made $1000 per month.  If you normally get overtime, include it, but do not include it if you only work overtime sometimes.  If you have lost a job or had your hours or wages reduced, use your current income.

What if some household members have no income to report?   

Household members may not receive some types of income we ask you to report on the application, or may not receive income at all. Whenever this happens, please write a 0 in the field. However, if any income fields are left empty or blank, those will also be counted as zeroes. Please be careful when leaving income fields blank, as we will assume you meant to do so.

We are in the military. Do we report our income differently?

Your basic pay and cash bonuses must be reported as income. If you get any cash value allowances for off-base housing, food, or clothing, or receive Family Subsistence Supplemental Allowance payments, it must also be included as income. However, if your housing is part of the Military Housing Privatization Initiative, do not include your housing allowance as income. Any additional combat pay resulting from deployment is also excluded from income.

What if there isn't enough space on the application for my family?   

List any additional household members on a separate piece of paper, and attach it to your application. Contact Sarah Coughlin, School Food & Nutrition Services, 128 Town Street, Braintree, MA 02184 at 781-848-4000 ext. 7045 or sarah.coughlin@braintreeschools.org to receive a second application.

My family needs more help. Are there other programs we might apply for?

To find out how to apply for MA SNAP or other assistance benefits, contact your local assistance office or call the MA SNAP Hotline at 1-866-950-3663.

If you have other questions or need help, call 781-848-4000 ext. 7045 or email sarah.coughlin@braintreeschools.org.

Sincerely,
Sarah Coughlin M.Ed, RD, LDN, SNS

Flexible Boundary Zone

A core value of the Braintree School Department is to maximize student learning through maintaining extremely favorable class sizes.  Because of increases in student enrollment being experienced within our school system, our elementary schools have space constraints that often prevent us from adding more class sections.  To effectively manage our school enrollments and class sizes, the Braintree School Committee established a “Flexible Boundary Policy.”

Flexible Boundary Zone Acknowledgement


Policy JC‐FBZ

Flexible Boundary Zones & School Enrollment

While students have a right to attend the elementary school in the school district where they reside, the Braintree School Committee endorses a policy of Flexible Boundary Zones (FBZ) for the enrollment of students new to the Braintree Public Schools effective for the 2016‐2017 school year.  The purpose of the FBZ policy is to ensure even utilization of individual building resources and staff throughout the school system, and to protect the educational well‐being of all students.

Flexible Boundary Zones are defined areas (neighborhoods, streets, etc.) for which individual addresses may be assigned to more than one elementary school.  Parent/guardians of students residing in a FBZ must request one of the designated elementary schools in the FBZ.  Requests will be granted based on space availability.  Students in FBZ do not have a designated home school until such time as they are assigned a school by school administration.  The assignment of the home school for students in FBZ is not subject to appeal.

With respect to the assignment of new families residing in buffer zones:

  1. The preference of the family will be considered in making the initial assignment.
     
  2. Once a family in an elementary buffer zone has been assigned a school for one child, other siblings who follow will also be enrolled in that elementary school unless the parent/guardian requests a different elementary school.  Their request for a different school will be considered on a space available basis.
