Boston College plans to move facility criticized

Merger with nearby school for disabled is poor option, parents say

Parents are deeply upset that Boston College is planning to merge a school for disabled children that has been located on its Chestnut Hill campus for 43 years with another school located about 3 miles away at the Franciscan Hospital for Children.

Boston College officials say they are exploring the merger because enrollment at the Campus School has declined to 38 from 49 in 2007, and say the Kennedy Day School at the Franciscan in Brighton has a new 20,000-square-foot facility with better amenities and programs.
