Bristol Community College plans Taunton expansion

Bristol Community College plans to begin offering daytime classes in Taunton this fall.

The Taunton School Committee voted 7-1 Wednesday to allow Superintendent Julie Hackett’s administration to move forward with a plan to allow BCC to use space at the Cohannet School building.

“Taunton has a critical need for access to higher education in the city,” BCC President John J. Sbrega said. “Taunton has always been an important part of our service area, and while we have provided direct services in the evening, it is clear from city officials and business leaders that there are residents who can benefit from college courses during the day. We are happy to serve those students.”
