North Middlesex Regional High School placed on probation

PUBLISHED: | UPDATED:

TOWNSEND — The North Middlesex Regional High School has been placed on probation by the New England Association of Schools and Colleges, a group that accredits public high schools in the region, according to an e-mail from School Committee Chairman Susan Robbins.

NEASC, according to school officials, held a meeting in January to consider the status of the high school’s accreditation but had not reported its decision.

For several years, NMRHS’s accreditation has been on warning status. During the last NEASC visitation, facilities were cited as the major concern about the school. The accreditation is up for review in 2013.

The Massachusetts School Building Authority recently invited NMRHS into the eligibility stage for funding a new building or renovations to the current site. School Committee members met with member town selectmen Monday to discuss funding an $800,00 feasibility study. In a presentation, the committee estimated the price tag for a new high school at $75 million.
