The committee working on the new elementary school project with the Massachusetts School Building Authority continued to meet over the summer, and the project is currently on schedule to meet the city’s goal of opening the new school for students in fall 2024, according to a recent update from architect Bert Gardner of Caolo and Bieniek Associates.

The new school, to be built on Franklin Street, will serve students from the area that currently feeds Abner Gibbs and Franklin Avenue elementary schools.

Gardner will be speaking with Superintendent Stefan Czaporowski about the progress that has been made and next steps for the project on the “Superintendent’s Spotlight” radio show, 9-10 a.m. Thursday, Sept. 15, on WSKB 89.5 FM and WCPC Channel 15.
