The district has been holding a series of forums to discuss the proposed grade 5-8 configuration of the new middle school. Embedded below is the video of the North Beverly forum provided by BevCam.
If you'd like to attend one of these forums in person, the final date, at Cove School has been rescheduled for Tuesday 2/25 from 6:30-8:30pm
The School Committee plans to vote on the configuration at its meeting on February 26th.
This site aims to inform and mobilize Beverly parents to take an active role in all issues related to the funding and operation of the city's schools. It was launched in the spring of 2008, when the city saw its first-ever override attempt fail, followed by the closure of a nearly-new elementary school. Subsequent years have seen further cuts that have led to larger class sizes across the district. While the opening of an impressive new high school and plans to replace the city's aging middle school give us reason to be optimistic, the school community must be ever vigilant in demanding appropriate school funding by city and state governments, and better community communications from the district and School Committee.
