Proposed School Closure Information

Good afternoon, Spencer Parents!

We hope everyone had a fantastic week. As you may have heard, the Board of Education formed an Ad Hoc School Closure Advisory Committee in June of this year to determine which elementary school could be closed. The two schools that are being considered for closure are Macdonough Elementary in the North End, and our Spencer Elementary. The committee met for three sessions, most recently on Thursday, September 13th. Nothing is concrete at this point; we want to reiterate that at this point, there is no decision as to which school will be closed for the 2017 – 2018 academic year.

The PTA would like Spencer Parents to become more aware of the impending situation, as the Board of Education will be looking for advisement from the Committee as to what school should be closed very shortly. There is a 40-page slide show on the Board of Education website that can be viewed by clicking here. The Spencer PTA is planning to hold a one-hour informative meeting prior to the Advisory Committee’s next meeting. As soon as the date and time are confirmed, we will pass the information on to you. Please feel free to reach out to us at Thank you.
