Boston school relocation proposal is scrutinized
Watchdog group says long-term plan vital
The Boston Finance Commission is investigating a school district decision to move Mission Hill K-8 as part of a larger effort to expand access to high-quality schools for fear that the plan was hatched quickly and could have unintended long-term consequences. The School Committee approved Superintendent Carol R. Johnson’s recommendation in November to move about a dozen schools. Shuffling locations would allow these popular schools to boost enrollment by adding 700 new seats through $12.2 million in renovations.
