Addressing Capacity, Growth, and Building Conditions

  • We have begun an exciting time of facilities renovation and expansion in the Newton Public Schools and we expect our Long Range Facilities Plan to continue for many years. A key aspect of this plan is not only the rebuilding and renovation of aging buildings but also expanding their capacity to meet the needs of our student population.
    We currently have schools that are over crowded and a few schools that will soon reach expanded capacity. We periodically bring together a Student Assignment Working Group to develop criteria for evaluating various assignment scenarios based on mapping data and other information.
