Events and Community Engagement

  • Boston Public Schools (BPS) released the proposed second phase of the BuildBPS educational and facilities master plan to the Boston School Committee on October 17, 2018, in anticipation of a vote on aspects of the plan in early December 2018.

    A crucial part of BuildBPS is a robust community engagement process in every neighborhood in Boston to provide information and collect feedback on the proposals, which include new construction, major renovations, and transformation of schools, as well as fewer school transitions for students and critical facilities repairs.

    BPS is organizing approximately 20 community meetings in October, November, and December 2018. Below is a list of confirmed meetings. This list will be updated with additional meetings as the times and locations are finalized
