On Oct. 17, the Boston Public Schools released the proposed second phase of the BuildBPS educational and facilities master plan, which includes recommendations for the construction, renovation or major transformation of 12 schools, to be completed or in progress by 2027.

The 10-year, $1 billion investment is the city’s first long-term strategic plan for schools in more than 40 years, and puts students at the heart of its proposals. BuildBPS works to design 21st-century classrooms for all schools, ensuring every student has the opportunity to achieve their full potential. BuildBPS also provides a strategic framework for facilities investments, as well as improvements that are aligned with the school district’s commitment to fostering exemplary teaching in a world-class system of innovative schools.

“There’s nothing more important in Boston than making sure each and every one of our 57,000 students in the Boston Public Schools receives an education that sets them up for success,” said Boston Mayor Marty Walsh. “BuildBPS is an opportunity to invest in school buildings that will deliver high-quality learning environments for our students for generations to come. In order to achieve our goals, we need to think big and work together to build a bright future for our schools.”
