Brewster Elementary Schools and the Town of Brewster engaged Habeeb & Associates Architects to conduct a study of possible facility options that would meet the educational needs of both the current and the projected enrollment of the pre-kindergarten through grade 5 student population.
The study evaluated two Brewster school buildings, Stony Brook Elementary School and Eddy Elementary School. The analysis considered enrollment trends, building capacities, quality of space, flexibility of space, instructional practices, programmatic needs, technology infrastructure, and school use. Based on the projected enrollment of the student population and the desired educational program of the Brewster Elementary Schools, several options were developed to meet the needs of this student population. The intent of the report is to provide a basis for long-term educational facilities planning as the Town of Brewster determines the measures that will be necessary to support the changing educational needs of the community.
Steven Habeeb, President and Principal Architect, and Jack Shea, Educational Planner, will present highlights of the report to the community on Tuesday, March 1 at 6:00 PM. Residents will have an opportunity to ask questions and make comments at this public forum.
Public presentations on the report will also be made at the Brewster School Committee meeting on Thursday January 20 at 6:30PM and the Brewster Select Board meeting on Monday January 24 at 6:00PM. School staff will be briefed as well on Tuesday February 1, 2022 at 2:15PM.
All meetings will be held remotely pursuant Governor Baker’s June 16, 2021 Act Extending Certain COVID-19 Measure Adopted During the State of Emergency, which includes an extension of the remote meeting provisions of his March 12, 2020, Executive Order Suspending Certain Provisions of the Open Meeting Law until April 1, 2022.
