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
§ All portables to be removed and replaced with permanent space
§ 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§ Discontinue the use of an outdated facility, pending approval of the School Board, and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 facilities
• Bring all schools up to code

The Brunswick School Department and school board have spent many hours reviewing current and future educational space needs and have concluded that the school district needs to construct a new elementary school of at least 500 pupils accompanying three remaining 350 student elementary schools. 2. and its relationship to the district’s Long Range Facilities Plan. District Overview The Brunswick School Board seeks to have a facilities project that will meet the long range space needs of the school district for up to fifty years.1995 • The high school was designed for 1200 students and currently has a population of 1137. Grades 2 & 3. There would be approximately 60 students at each grade level. If you know at this time. The overall student population would be reduced from 490 students to 350 students grades K-5. There would be code and system upgrades. No work to the high school is envisioned with this application. Site issues would be addressed such as a shortage of parking and a lack of separation between cars and busses. • The High School will continue to serve grades 9-12.

• The possibility of adding additional locally or federally funded teachers to lower class size. Currently. The new school would allow for: • A pre-school program to provide student readiness skills for children. • Additional programming such as gifted and talented. particularly in our military families. thereby reducing the number of military families at just one school. closed due to ADA issues. large numbers of students begin school at the Early Childhood Center at Jordan Acres School and then are required to transfer to either the Hawthorne School or the Coffin School after kindergarten. health education. The reorganization of the elementary schools should be designed to bring about greater equity and cause these concerns to dissipate throughout the school district and the community. After attending both grades K and 1 at the Jordan Acres School. For example. the small number of students the school serves and its high yearly operational costs.

Our proposed building project envisions a K-5 500 student elementary school that provides the necessary space to allow for many programs not currently possible. This causes great anxiety. due to our many space needs problems. A K-5 elementary school organizational structure is well established in Brunswick and reflects the unique situation of a military community.

The Board discussed such issues as the most appropriate size and grade configuration for Brunswick schools. to the best of their ability. with more modest renovations at the remaining schools. 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.

We examined the particular challenges posed by and for our large Navy population. We envision students striving towards significant accomplishments and the attainment of their full potential. Preliminary cost estimates for any of these proposed plans suggested that it might make far more sense. to utilize and adapt technology. and to become responsible individuals. acquire and apply the skills necessary to effectively communicate.

Aware that the State was moving to end its financial support for portable classrooms. The worth and dignity of the individual students are recognized in order to provide for maximum intellectual. After the Task Force issued its report in 2000. 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. to appreciate aesthetics of life and to understand their responsibilities as individuals in a democratic society.

The Board has made no formal decision on any of these matters. 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. School Board Vision The vision of the Brunswick School Board is a community of life -long learners able to contribute positively to society. our initial emphasis was on replacing these spaces (found at two of our elementary schools and the junior high school) with permanent classroom space.

The open concept is not ideal for students with special needs or those who have a difficult time focusing. 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. the space available or not available depending on the specific school limits the learning experience.

Still later on. The cafeteria is used as a gym and performing arts center with no storage space for chairs and tables. teachers may want desks in a row for recitation and presentation lessons. For example – on some days or points in the instructional day. They may next want the desks arranged in a cluster of six to do “committee work” or cooperative team work. Weather conditions are a problem for students. 5. 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. 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.

This can probably be done without any major re-wiring of the building network cables. will this project allow you to implement? How do these specific program changes related to the Learning Results? We will be able to implement a Gifted and Talented Program as well as having adequate space for our Foreign Language Program which addresses state mandates and district goals. We would like to have the space to offer a full day kindergarten program. kindergarten students. This will allow for flexibility in scheduling and greater student access to computer technology. It would be more efficient if services could be provided in a central area. Currently. We will be able to offer whole class instruction in the new computer lab and house our computer hub in a room and not the hallway. This is a violation by placing students with age typical peers. There is no space designated for evaluators to do the extensive assessment necessary to diagnose and identify students requiring specialized instruction. We will continue to utilize the two wireless carts and add more as funds become available. the open concept makes it the least appropriate for many students with Attention Deficit Disorders and students with Autism Spectrum Disorders. Jordan Acres would be better served by having a learning center environment within the building. It is not unusual for a student to have to move from their home school to a different school in the district due to need for a more traditionally structured classroom Technology Issues The long range goals for Jordan Acres include the continued use of wireless laptops on mobile charging / security carts to expand the use of computers beyond the traditional fixed lab environment. printers and laptops that are awaiting repair. But due to lack of space and increased need for speech services. Students must go from one building to another in order to get from their classes to the special education classrooms. The Learning Center could address the needs of the whole school by combining all support services for Jordan Acres students. They are now stored in classroom spaces or out in the open in the library. There is a space in the main building for Special Education Resource Services and Speech Therapy. We will also have much needed storage for our new and existing programs. This space should also function as a temporary holding facility for desktops. Although Jordan Acres is the newest of the elementary schools. It also sends a negative message to students with academic challenges who are housed with kindergarteners. Students lose valuable time getting dressed just to go from building to building. Jordan Acres has requested space for a fixed lab and space for the wiring closet which is currently in an exposed hallway. making one adequate space into two inadequate spaces. Additional space is required for storage of the mobile charging / security carts. The room was original designated for the Resource Room. It should also serve as a space for the Technology Integrator to store materials used in the classroom. 5.

We share some procurement functions with the Town of Brunswick. Brunswick School Department has for the past five years been in an ongoing process of reviewing and evaluating space needs. Many of the students use assistive techno logy which requires designated outlets. For example. We are a member of the Cumberland County Superintendent’s and Special Education Directors’ collaborative team to address Essential Programs and Services. We have also actively sought and currently participate in collaboration with other school districts and municipalities. (See question 1). and Freeport). The superintendents and directors of special education in Cumberland County have already initiated a number of conversations concerning regionalized services. We join with the Town of Brunswick and MSAD 75 to collectively purchase heating fuel. Due to the open nature of the school there are serious concerns about confidentiality issues. Describe any consideration given to consolidation within your school administrative unit. We share transportation services with other towns where possible for out of district placement special education students. A wide range of options were considered and it was determined that consolidation within the school district is not practicable and that maintaining elementary schools in the 350 to 500 student range best meets the needs of Brunswick. There is no designated space for any evaluator to do the extensive evaluation required by la w to identify a student who may require services. Falmouth. 7.
