The Boston Public School’s previously announced the BuildBPS plan, which calls for some old schools to close, new schools to be built, and other schools to expand, including growing the amount of K-6 schools. Jamaica Plain’s Manning School wants to be one of the schools to add a sixth grade.
There will be a JP BuildBPS community meeting on Jan. 10 to discuss the $1 billion plan. It will be the fourteenth community meeting across the city to discuss the plan, with the first 13 having already taken place before Nov. 30. Previously, it was announced that the School Committee is expected to take a vote on aspects of the plan in early December.
