Heath School Parents Look to Build Bigger Auditorium [POLL]
Parents at the Heath School have offered to raise $1.8 million to expand the existing auditorium. The Brookline School Committee debates.
Some parents in town are putting bricks and concrete on their Back-to-school lists. A group of parents with kids at the Heath School offered to raise $1.8 million to pay for a larger auditorium, the Globe reports.
As a result of plans to expand the school, add new classrooms and make it more accessible, the auditorium is slated to lose a few seats. By the Globe's calculations, only about 36 percent of students enrolled in the school would have a seat in the auditorium--which is why the parents want to expand it.
However, the school committee says they need to run this plan by the policy subcommittee. They plan to examine this issue before the end of the school year, and revisit the proposal then.
