B. Facilities Summary of Long-Range Facilities Plan
1. Briefly describe your long-range plan for the uses of each of the facilities in your unit to meet the goals
of your Comprehensive Plan.

The Brunswick School Department’s application addresses district-wide needs in a single
coordinated plan that involves all four elementary schools, the junior high school, and the
proposed construction of a new elementary school. The current high school is not affected
by this plan. The application is based on a series of studies commissioned by the school
board over the last three years to look at the entire district’s educational and facility needs.
Copies of these studies prepared by Harriman Associates, the Brunswick School
Department, and Planning Decisions Inc. and Northeast Building Consultants Inc. can be
made available to the Department of Education. The following are goals developed from the
district’s studies and their impact on each facility:

District-Wide Project Goals

§ Grades K-5 in all elementary schools
§ Equity of educational programs among all elementary schools (e.g. - Special Ed)
§ Reduce overcrowding in all elementary schools
§ Provide capacity for all-day kindergarten
§ Provide better opportunities for technology integration with the curriculum to meet the
Maine Learning Results (MLR)
§ Discontinue the use of an outdated facility, pending approval of the School Board, and
replace it with a new elementary school
§ Provide capacity for a pre-kindergarten program in the new school
§ Provide capacity for reduced class sizes
§ Provide flexibility to respond to potential enrollment increases
§ Develop a simple and cost effective solution to the district’s needs
1. Minimize construction costs
2. Reduce district-wide operations and maintenance costs
§ Upgrade education programs based on The Maine Learning Results and No Child Left
Behind (NCLB), apply minimum state standards and amenities for all program spaces
§ Improve the educational environment
§ Provide the opportunity for community use of the school buildings now lacking in some

Part II Educational Program Information .

The Brunswick School Board has been at work for nearly five years to assess our elementary space needs and to develop a process and a plan to ensure that any facility changes enhance our educational mission. The process began in 1999 with the creation of an Elementary Space Needs Task Force. to think critically and creatively. the full Board began a series of workshops examining our educational goals as they relate to the development of additional elementary space and outlining the objectives we intend to pursue as we make these proposed changes. Major Capital Improvement Application 6 5/28/04 Hawthorne Elementary . to focus our efforts on building a new school. The worth and dignity of the individual students are recognized in order to provide for maximum intellectual. The Board has made no formal decision on any of these matters. other than to submit this application for State assistance in helping us meet the current and future educational needs of Brunswick students. to utilize and adapt technology. In addition. and how to ensure that every Brunswick student has an equal opportunity to receive a quality education. With the help of Harriman Associates. We examined the particular challenges posed by and for our large Navy population. Preliminary cost estimates for any of these proposed plans suggested that it might make far more sense. physical. to make choices. State the School Administrative Unit’s (SAU) Educational Mission. We envision students striving towards significant accomplishments and the attainment of their full potential. we conducted a school-by-school assessment of the adequacy of our existing elementary schools to support current programming and to provide appropriate space for future program initiatives. and to become responsible individuals. Philosophy of the Brunswick Public Schools Our primary purpose is to educate students with an emphasis on the mastery of basic skills and expansion of knowledge. to the best of their ability. Towards this end. In order to reach their potentials. and Goals and relate them to the proposed project. students will be encouraged to explore ideas. students shall. our initial emphasis was on replacing these spaces (found at two of our elementary schools and the junior high school) with permanent classroom space. social and emotional development. teachers and parents. with more modest renovations at the remaining schools. acquire and apply the skills necessary to effectively communicate. The Board discussed such issues as the most appropriate size and grade configuration for Brunswick schools. After the Task Force issued its report in 2000. in terms of both cost and the quality of our education program. led by two Board members and including administrators. Aware that the State was moving to end its financial support for portable classrooms.Part II: Educational Program Information on Affected Facility(s) 1. Vision. and we also talked at length about the difficulty of maintaining the Hawthorne School in its current form. School Board Vision The vision of the Brunswick School Board is a community of life -long learners able to contribute positively to society. we worked through several scenarios through which we might attempt to meet current and future space needs simply through renovations at each of the existing elementary schools. to appreciate aesthetics of life and to understand their responsibilities as individuals in a democratic society.

The number of stairs and the fact that the building’s operation encompasses three floors present problems for younger/smaller students. Describe the extent to which the Learning Results have been integrated into the educational program in the facilities and any limitations the current facilities presents in their further implementation. by grade. Therefore. The varied architectural designs and sizes of each of our schools make it unlikely that every student will experience the same educational experience across the district. Although the curriculum and assessments may be the same at each grade level. Classroom space is utilized in a rational manner by the skillful teacher.2. Lack of space for all day kindergarten classes (if desired). They may next want the desks arranged in a cluster of six to do “committee work” or cooperative team work. This produces an inherent barrier to providing the same educational experience for all Brunswick students in meeting the standards of the Maine Learning Results. teachers may want desks in a row for recitation and presentation lessons. the space available or not available depending on the specific school limits the learning experience. The space limitations faced by many of Brunswick’s elementary teachers limit. 3. matched to curricular goals. These inherent space needs limitations have been so ingrained over the years with our veteran teachers that they are resigned to the fact that when they design their lessons they design them based on the enduring reality of limited space. 4. This creates a disruption for those students and their families. For example – on some days or points in the instructional day. Lack of space for Gifted and Talented education classes. Lack of classroom space for Career Education or Health classes. How are the buildings organized for program delivery? (Ex. the kindergarten students who would normally attend Hawthorne have to go elsewhere for that year. 5. The Brunswick School Department is committed to ensuring that all students achieve. Major Capital Improvement Application 7 5/28/04 Hawthorne Elementary . This limitation on classroom instructional strategies and programmatic needs pose real limits on the school department’s long-term ability to comply with the requirements of the Maine Learning Results. 2. Some examples are: 1. inhibit. department) The buildings in the district are organized by grade levels. Limitations on instructional practices of individual teachers due to the inability to use space flexibility for different instructional purposes at different times. 3. the teacher may want to use the space for a large circle around the perimeter of the room for large classroom discussion and eye contact. Our teachers do the best they can to provide a quality learning experience within our classrooms although they are limited in implementing various instructional practices and programs due to space constraints. or discourage individual teacher creativity in providing a wide variety of uses of classroom space for instructional or learning purposes. The elementary buildings are K-5 with the exception of Hawthorne. house. which is 1-5. Lack of classroom space for elementary foreign language instruction.

We would have to double the purchases of additional carts to meet classroom goals of increased access to technology because of the inability to move equipment from floor to floor. due to building limitations. kindergarten students have to attend elsewhere and transfer to Hawthorne as first graders. Parent presentations. Specific issues for Hawthorne are the following: • Although classroom space is quite adequate there are too few of them and overall the facility presents some significant restrictions to the elementary instructional program. The project would allow students to attend the same school throughout their elementary years and not have to receive some instruction elsewhere. • Since there are no at-grade classrooms. The wiring closet is located in a small classroom closet with inadequate ventilation and space to perform maintenance. The building is not ADA compliant in any manner so that it is totally inaccessible to any student. A fixed lab uses laptops because there is no way to move the carts from one floor to the other. Technology Issues Hawthorne has major deficiencies that impede progress in expanding technology services in the building. This building is often overlooked for community usage due to its significant ADA limitations. All spaces are shared by part-time special education teachers so that no one really has ownership of a space. • Lacking a gym for physical education and assemblies that might include parents or other members of the public. That classroom is also the room used by the part time behavior resource teacher and Title 1 teacher. or classes in unsuitable areas? General Notes There is no gym or room that could be used for physical education. parent or community member with mobility challenges. • Inadequate space for movement activities (music). and Part 2. This would increase instructional time for all classes since there would no longer be any busing for physical Major Capital Improvement Application 8 5/28/04 Hawthorne Elementary . • There is no space for any programs currently in development such as elementary foreign languages or Gifted and Talented instruction. Special Education Issues The positive aspect of the Hawthorne School is that the room used by the resource program is huge and able to provide appropriate space. • The classroom structure (a 110 year old wood structure) does not lend itself to science experiments at the upper elementary level that might involve heating or utilizing certain chemicals. or new programs. have to take place in other schools. etc. Have building limitations resulted in unusual or difficult scheduling.
