Survey: Mattapoisett School Consolidation Feedback Opportunity
The Town of Mattapoisett is reviewing its strategic vision, part of which includes the condition and use of all town facilities. The Edward J. Collins, Jr. Center for Public Management has been engaged by the Town, with cooperation from the School District to study school consolidation. This study was primarily born from the decline in student enrollment the Mattapoisett Public School District has experienced over the past decade. The Town and District are not alone in facing this demographic trend, and like many other communities, the per pupil expenditure has continued to rise steadily alongside other Town and District priorities competing for scarce resources.
As part of this study, the Collins Center will be soliciting public feedback to help determine the values and priorities our residents hold surrounding educational programming and facilities.
