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 Bruns wick
School Department, 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§ Discontinue the use of an outdated facility, pending approval of the School Board, and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
§ Improve the educational environment
§ Provide the opportunity for community use of the school buildings now lacking in
some facilities

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. There would be approximately 60 students at each grade level K-5 with a full-day kindergarten. The overall student population would be reduced from 450 students to 350 students grades K-5.

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. to the best of their ability. 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 appreciate aesthetics of life and to understand their responsibilities as individuals in a democratic society. to focus our efforts on building a new school. 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. and to become responsible individuals. other than to submit this application for State assistance in helping us meet the current and future educational needs of Brunswick. our initial emphasis was on replacing these spaces (found at two of our elementary schools and the junior high school) with permanent classroom space. students shall.

School Board Vision The vision of the Brunswick School Board is a community of life -long learners able to contribute positively to society. to think critically and creatively. The Board has made no formal decision on any of these matters. 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.Part II: Educational Program Information on Affected Facility(s) 1. students will be encouraged to explore ideas. and we also talked at length about the difficulty of maintaining the Hawthorne School in its current form.

With the help of Harriman Associates. with more modest renovations at the remaining schools. Major Capital Improvement Application 6 5/28/04 Coffin Elementary . Aware that the State was moving to end its financial support for portable classrooms. 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. Preliminary cost estimates for any of these proposed plans suggested that it might make far more sense. The Board discussed such issues as the most appropriate size and grade configuration for Brunswick schools. physical. and how to ensure that every Brunswick student has an equal opportunity to receive a quality education. and Goals and relate them to the proposed project.

The portable units house 5 classrooms. 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. 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.

We currently ha ve over 25% of our classrooms outside of the main building. parents or community members. Specific issues for Coffin are: • Physical Education space is used by another school due to its space limitations • Occupational Therapy and Physical Therapy are currently delivered in a former storage closet • Space does not exist for Gifted and Talented • Space does not exist for Foreign Language • Space does not exist for All Day Kindergarten • Space does not exist for a Pre-K program • Staff communication issues due to portable classroom • Storage space is severely limited • ESL and tutoring share the same space • Title One and Reading Recovery Share the same space • Functional Skills space is overcrowded. students.

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 have adequate space for our Foreign Language Program.

Major Capital Improvement Application 9 5/28/04 Coffin Elementary . Students would lose less time going from service to service since they could be piggy-backed in one efficient area. not just for those involved with the Occupational Therapist and Physical Therapist but for any student passing through the halls. We will also have much needed storage for our new and existing programs. There is no closet space in any of the rooms making it necessary to stack materials along all of the walls. This space should also function as a temporary holding facility for desktops. We will have the ability to offer all-day kindergarten classes. is poorly ventilated and arranged. 5. At Coffin we have 5 students in wheelchairs. A new space is required to store the additional carts for security and charging overnight. Coffin School has one half-lab of laptops on a cart. There are inadequate electrical outlets to charge the cart when the lab is being used. This project will help us to house our entire K- 5 grade programs in one building by replacing the outdated portable classrooms. Our district wide Elementary Behavior Resource and ESL programs could also be held in the building. It should also serve as a space for the technology integrator to store materials used in the classroom. printers and laptops that are awaiting repair. corners and lined up in the corridors. This is stored in a cramped space in the fixed desktop lab. This will allow for flexibility in scheduling and greater student access to computer technology. Supplies could also be shared by the various staff who need specialized equipment which could decrease the local budget for this costly expense. Four of those students receive instruction in the functional skills class.

Brunswick School Department has for the past five years been in an ongoing process of reviewing and evaluating space needs. Many students work on assistive technology which requires designated outlets. the nature and intensity of these conversations has resulted in a proposal to regionalize specific functions of both regular and special education. 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. The room is small. Presently there is no office space. there is no room or phone for confidential meetings or calls. Major Capital Improvement Application 10 5/28/04 Coffin Elementary .
