Elementary School

 

Currently our PK-3 schools are either at capacity or nearing capacity. A key project for us as a community is to respond thoughtfully to this growth in enrollment. In 2015 we proactively began assessing this need with a learning phase and data gathering phase. We conducted tours of the PK-3 schools for Town leaders, and School Committee worked collaboratively with Fincom, Planning Board, and Selectmen to hire a “Demographic, Enrollment Projections and School Capacity Assessment Report”.  This report, compiled by consultants HMFH Architects, provides clear data and ideas about our schools. The link to the full study report from HMFH can be found by clicking the Enrollment Study link on this page. It is an extensive report with 10-year population growth information on student enrollment.

Subsequently, the town voted the formation of a PreK-3 Building Committee, which has worked diligently to develop a plan of action that assures the town of having current, appropriate buildings for Westborough students. The decision was made to move forward with plans for an upgrade of the Fales Elementary School. A Statement of Interest (SOI) was submitted to the Massachusetts School Building Authority (MSBA) in April 2016, and is currently advancing through the steps for project approval and funding. In December 2017, Vertex Companies, Inc. was named as the Owner’s Project Manager (OPM), and HMFH Architects was selected as the Project Designer in the spring of 2018.

This site contains a range of documents that provide background information, as well as updates on progress toward completion of the Fales project.
