Important: Location Changes for District Offices and Staff

Dear PSB Families,
 

Last week, many of the school department offices that directly support families are moving to new locations. I am writing to let you know about these moves in the event you need to reach out to any of our staff for assistance. 
 

In July 2019, the School Committee decided to lease classroom and administrative space from the Maimonides School at 2 Clark Road, Brookline as part of their ongoing effort to address overcrowding in our schools and to better serve our students. Three Brookline Early Education Program classrooms are already using the space at Clark Road. For the 2019-2020 school year, we will also have specific administrative offices in the Clark Road building. 
 

Beginning today, staff located at the Brookline Education Resource Center on 24 Webster Place, and some staff located on the 4th floor of Town Hall, have moved to a new location. Please take a few minutes to review these changes summarized below:
