Study: more space needed at Franklin High

FRANKLIN

A study of space and program needs at Franklin High School has recently been completed and presented to the School Committee.

The study outlined a need for new science classrooms, a new auditorium, and connections between wings on the second floor level.

The report calls for adding at least 83,000 square feet of space to the existing building of about 300,000 square feet. Of those proposed additions, 57,000 square feet would be eligible for reimbursement through the state School Building Assistance Bureau program and 26,000 square feet -- the auditorium -- would not be reimbursable.
