Boston Public Schools Staff and community members have been working diligently over the past several weeks focused on the development and initial vision and mission of the Mattapan Early Elementary School (temporary name).
The New School Design Team meets weekly on Tuesday evenings
12/20/16 The New School Design Team spent a half day retreat at the Boston Nature Center working on the mission and vision of the school.
Their work is grounded in the Strategic Implementation Plan as well as the Opportunity and Achievement Gap Task Force Policy.
The first Steering Committee meeting took place during which members of the New School Design Team had the opportunity to share out the work in order to obtain feedback for planning moving forward.
Design team members visited the Boston Nature Center Preschool.
On January 10, 2017, a group of parents who have selected the new school for September 2017 will tour several early childhood programs with design team members to identify elements they would like to see included in the learning environments for their children.
