From November 21 through December 6, the School Committee conducted a community survey asking residents to weigh in on important criteria and hypothetical solutions to the conditions of the Center School. The survey was available online and in hard copy at the Senior Center and Hopkinton Public Library. In order to gather feedback from the entire community, the survey was broadly advertised through all local print and online media. In addition, a postcard was sent to every home in Hopkinton to encourage participation.
The survey garnered the largest response rate to date of any community survey conducted by the School Committee. The results of the survey are now being analyzed. The data will be presented to the School Committee, Board of Selectmen, and community at a meeting on January 4, 2012 at 6:30 pm in the Hopkinton Middle School Library. The meeting will be televised on HCAM for those who cannot attend in person.
The School Committee would like to thank the community for the tremendous response.
