School board OK’s next step for modular classrooms

The School Committee gave its approval Monday for the district to spend $350,000 on a feasibility study and designs for installing seven modular classrooms at four elementary schools to handle anticipated enrollment increases. The committee indicated it would like to install the temporary classrooms at the Bowen, Burr, Horace Mann, and Mason-Rice elementary schools by the start of classes next fall. The School Committee hopes to award a contract by mid-March, but the project must first pass through the design process and win approval from the city. Last week’s vote will allow district administrators to begin arranging the design work immediately, according to a report to the School Committee.
