ABRSD School Committee Release - School Building Project

The following is an update from Mary Brolin, the Chair for the Acton-Boxborough Regional School Committee and District Master Plan Review Committee:

Dear Acton and Boxborough Community Member:

Attached please find the School Committee's monthly update for February.

As you may know, the Acton-Boxborough Regional School District (ABRSD) has spent the last eighteen months focused on a capital planning process, which began as an investigation of the existing conditions of our facilities and continued into the development of options to address current and future educational needs.  At the end of this work, we will have a detailed and final District Master Plan in place.

The district’s most pressing building needs are at the elementary level, and we are now looking to our community for input and feedback on how we might want to move forward.

The School Committee would like to invite members of the public to attend a community forum to share a number of different potential building options and gauge how people feel about them.

They can be described as:

•         Either a single school program per building, or multiple school programs per building (e.g., single, double/twin school, or triple school)

•         With or without an Early Childhood Center (ECC) (PK-K) option

Yet, they vary in a number of ways:

•         The resulting number of school programs and/or buildings that remain

•         The grade levels within each school program

•         The site location(s)

•         The overall project cost and timing

•         The other projects that will be done at remaining district buildings

Some of these options may result in a significant change from our current structure, and for that reason, we need to hear how people feel about these potential changes.

Attached is a flyer with details regarding the forums’ dates, times and locations.  We’ve also attached a smaller description you may be able to use in an email or newsletter format.  Please share this important information with others in any way you are able.

For questions, please email, or contact Beth Petr, Executive Assistant to the School Committee, at 978-264-3306 or

Many thanks,

Mary Brolin

Chair, ABRSC and District Master Plan Review Committee
