Background on the Fuller Middle School Building Project
Framingham’s School Building Committee for the Fuller Middle School Building Project was formed in accordance with Massachusetts School Building Authority requirements to oversee the study and project on behalf of the community. Membership of the group comes from City Government leadership, Framingham Public School leadership, School Committee Members, teachers, and representatives from the community with knowledge in design and construction.
Fuller Middle School has served the community well for over 60 years. The school has reached a point that it no longer meets today's building codes, has structural deficiencies, inefficient and inoperable systems, and does not adequately support our educational curriculum. The Massachusetts School Building Authority (MSBA) has visited the school and agrees. The MSBA is the state agency charged with overseeing and supporting school improvement projects with state grants. The MSBA and City of Framingham have developed a cost effective, sustainable, and educationally appropriate solution for the aging Fuller Middle School for which the MSBA will provide a significant grant to the City.
