New Bedford’s Innovative Schools Discussed

TSM

The designers of the Renaissance and Esperanza Innovation School proposals appeared before the New bedford School Committee Wednesday night to make presentations and answer questions.

It was the first of two public hearings on the innovation school plans. The designers were grilled for nearly an hour with questions from School Committee members. Their proposal would see a school that teaches its students both English and Spanish.

The school would be located in the Roosevelt Middle School. After the meeting, Lou St. John, President of the New Bedford Teachers Association, addressed a comment made by the Esperanza School representatives about not having any representation by members of the school department on their design team.
