Hopkinton Public Schools Calendar Survey
In August 2019 Superintendent Dr. Carol Cavanaugh requested the formation of a calendar review subcommittee that would consider whether the HPS School Calendar is optimally structured to meet the needs of our families and community. As part of the process to develop recommendations to the Hopkinton School Committee, a group of parents, students, teachers, administrators, and community members meeting as a Calendar Review Subcommittee have developed this survey to gather feedback from both the Hopkinton school and broader community to inform recommendations and revisions for the HPS calendar going forward.
Superintendent’s Blog: Enrollment Blog
In this blog entry, I want to talk a bit about student enrollment and its impacts on our physical plants–that is, our school buildings.
Consider this: In the past three years, we have enrolled a net increase of over 500 students across all grade levels. The school population has risen from about 3,500 students to 4,000 students. Three years ago, when school opened in 2016, we had just about 500 students in the Hopkins School, a school with 24 regular education classrooms.
