This past spring, parents, staff, and community residents were invited to express their views on the suitability of the Fuller building for use as an elementary school. Over 500 persons responded. Please consult the report for an overview and detailed results.
Note: a second survey about the Fuller was conducted by the city. The city survey asked residents' opinions about the school assuming that the school committee declared the building surplus.
