Educational Vision Community Forum Feb. 7


NOTE:  This forum has been postponed to Tuesday, February 13

Date: Wednesday, February 7
Time: 7:00 – 9:00 pm
Place: Arlington Town Hall

This is the second in a series of four public forums to gather community input for the future renovated/rebuilt High School.

The focus of this forum will be on the educational vision for the High School.  David Stephen, from New Vista Design, will give an overview of 21st century teaching and learning themes and Matthew Janger, AHS principal, will highlight current offerings at AHS, including a look to the future.

Attendees will meet in small groups to discuss priority learning goals and share their educational vision of the future AHS.  District leaders and representatives from HMFH (project architect) and Skanska (Owner’s Project Manager) will be on hand to answer questions.

Future planned forums:
March 5        7 – 9 pm at AHS, tours of the High School followed by a discussion of building design patterns
April 4           7 – 9 pm at Town Hall, update from HMFH Architects on potential building concepts

Read a summary of the first public forum held on January 10th.

The Town of Arlington has been invited into the Massachusetts School Building Authority (MSBA) process for the renovation/construction of Arlington High School.  Acceptance to the MSBA program does not guarantee state funding.  The MSBA approval process must be completed successfully for the state, via the MSBA, to provide significant financial assistance to the project.  Local funding must also be assured through passage of a debt exclusion.
