For students, a new school year brings with it the precious opportunity to “start fresh.” Even if the prior school year was their most successful yet, every grade provides new and exciting challenges. Whether a child or young adult wants to reinvent their personal style, explore a new sport or activity, get better grades, or throw themselves into a passion project, school offers limitless possibilities for them to pursue their dreams in a safe, nurturing environment that allows them to take risks, struggle or fail, and pick themselves up, being better for the experience.
As Easton’s new Superintendent, I want to assure you that the loving and tolerant environment that has always been enjoyed in Easton will continue to be our highest priority. I’d like to remind us all of the Core Values by which all decisions, great and small, are made in EPS. They are Academic Excellence and Equity for All, Cooperative and Caring Relationships, Respecting and Valuing Diversity, and Commitment to Community. As you can see, every one of these values is predicated on the notion that we are all equally viewed, valued, and embraced. Clearly we are facing some turbulent times in our nation and in our world. It is up to us as parents, educators, and community members to work together to serve as the models of the civility, social justice, and respectful discourse that we wish each of our own children to emulate and enjoy.
I assure you that these Core Values will be at the forefront of all we do in the Easton Public Schools so that every child can enjoy their “fresh start.” I am thrilled to be part of this extraordinary learning community, and I thank you for your continued support in making the Easton Public Schools the world class school system it is today. Please let me know how I can be of assistance throughout the school year. I look forward to working with each of you to make all of our children’s dreams come true.

Information about the Center School Feasibility Study
- The Easton School District is currently in the Eligibility phase for the Center School Building Project through the Massachusetts School Building Authority. This is the first phase of a multi-year process to secure MSBA funding for a School Building Project.
- The condition of Easton’s three primary schools continues to deteriorate. The buildings themselves are old, in need of serious repairs, and do not meet the demanding program requirements of a twenty-first century education.
- The invitation to participate in the MSBA program is an extraordinary opportunity for our community. The ability to secure millions of dollars in funding from the State for such a large capital project reduces the cost burden on Easton’s taxpayers. Since 2011, Easton has submitted a Statement of Interest for each of our primary schools to the MSBA. This was the first year any of the schools was invited to participate in the Eligibility Phase of the process.
- The MSBA rules allowed Easton to identify two building design options and two site options:
- Building Design Options
- Center School design which will meet the educational needs of the projected Center School population
- District-wide design which will meet the educational needs of the projected entire town-wide pre-K through 2 population
- Site Options
- Current Center School property
- Current Parkview School property
- Building Design Options
- In May of 2017, Town Meeting transferred $1 million dollars from the Avalon Bay mitigation payments to capital stabilization funds with the intent of accessing these funds for the feasibility study before us this fall.
- The Board of Selectmen, the School Committee, the Finance Committee, and the Budget Subcommittee all support using the Avalon mitigation money for school based projects.
- The $1 million dollars will fund the feasibility study and schematic design phase for the Center School Project.
- This funding will allow the Town to: form the Project Team, document our educational program, develop and evaluate alternative design solutions, submit a preliminary design program to the MSBA, and develop a final design program and schematic design which will delineate the scope, budget and schedule of the proposed project.
