South End’s McKinley Among Schools That Received Suspicious Letters

The park extends along the perimeter of the parking lot behind McKinley School

One South End School, the McKinley school, was among the Boston public schools that received suspicious letters late last week.

As of Friday afternoon the Boston Police Department had collected 24 suspicious letters sent to Boston public schools, according to BPDnews.com.

“There does not appear to be any reason why any particular schools received letters, and it is possible that others have yet to arrive. The letters all appear to be from the same sender and have the same postmarked Texas address. The investigation is ongoing,” the BPDnews.com posting stated.

Boston Police increased presence at schools across the city on Thursday and Friday, and police have said there is no credible physical threat. The letters did not contain any dangerous substances.

The following schools received the letters:

Adams Elementary School
Beethoven Elementary School
Boston Community Leadership Academy
Boston International High School
Boston Latin Academy
Charlestown High School
Community Academy of Science and Health
Dorchester Academy
Edison K-8 School
Fenway High School
Gardner Pilot Academy
Henderson Elementary School
Irving Middle School
Mather Elementary School
McCormack Middle School
McKinley South End Academy
Murphy K-8 School
O’Bryant School of Mathematics and Science
O’Donnell Elementary School
Ohrenberger School
Quincy Upper School

Connolly Wants Developers to Get Fast Track For Schools

John Connolly, candidate for Boston mayor, with supporters before the 20th annual Corrib Classic 5K Road Race on June 2, 2013.

 

Boston At-Large City Councilor and mayoral John Connolly proposed allowing a fast track permitting process for large developers, if they agree to build a school or fund any of the $ 1.8 billion in construction projects identified as needed for Boston Public Schools.

“We look at large school development projects and offer an option to developers to give them a fast-track permitting process. Keep it to six months, and still do the full-robust process, but get it done in six months – in exchange for building a new school or the adoption of a major school project,” said Connolly during the Boston City Council’s Wednesday meeting. He added that projects would still get rejected, and those developers would not have to build a school or adopt a project.

Through recent budget hearings, Connolly said that Boston Public School (BPS) long-term facilities plan “is in development”, and that $ 1.8 billion in new construction needs have been identified, as well as $ 640 million in needed renovations and repairs, and $ 500 million in deferred maintenance costs. read more
