Events and Community Engagement




    Together, we are re-imagining and renewing Boston’s public school infrastructure to provide a brighter future for every student in every neighborhood.

    The next phase of BuildBPS engagement is now underway. Please join us to ask questions and share your feedback and ideas.   

    BuildBPS Neighborhood Workshops

    Help BPS decide how to invest $1 billion in Boston’s school buildings over the next ten years.

    During the months of May and June, the City of Boston and Boston Public Schools will host a series of BuildBPS neighborhood workshops across the city. At these interactive sessions, teams of parents, students, staff, and other stakeholders will brainstorm investment opportunities in school buildings, using data and priorities from the 10-year educational and facilities master plan. These workshops are designed to generate ideas for repair, renovation, expansion, and building projects to create state-of-the-art school facilities.
