Philbrick-Sumner merger and Irving renovation

We are proposing to combine the Philbrick and Sumner schools to become a preK-6 school located in the renovated Irving building, beginning in the Fall of 2025. Combining the schools will consolidate resources to invest in expanded academic and enrichment opportunities and inclusion. The FY24 Capital Plan proposal includes $90.8 million to renovate the Irving building, and we expect construction to begin in the Summer of 2023.
