School Building Authority to examine need for work on Florence Roche


BOSTON — The Massachusetts School Building Authority has voted to invited the Florence Roche School into the MSBA’s Eligibility Period.

During the 270-day Eligibility Period, the MSBA will work with the Regional School District to determine the district’s financial and community readiness to enter the MSBA Capital Pipeline.

“The MSBA will work collaboratively with local officials to ensure the best outcome for the district’s students,” State Treasurer Deborah B. Goldberg said.

The next step is for the District to complete preliminary requirements pertaining to local approval and formation of a local school building committee. Upon timely and successful completion of the Eligibility Period requirements, the district becomes eligible for an invitation into the Feasibility Study phase of the MSBA Capital Pipeline, subject to a vote of the Board of Directors.

“The Eligibility Period is a critical step in the MSBA’s process of evaluating potential work on the Florence Roche School,” Executive Director Jack McCarthy said. “We look forward to our continued partnership with the district as it enters the Eligibility Period.”

The MSBA partners with Massachusetts communities to support the design and construction of educationally-appropriate, flexible, sustainable and cost-effective public school facilities. Since its 2004 inception, the Authority has made over 1,750 site visits to more than 250 school

districts as part of its due diligence process and has made over $12.9 billion in reimbursements for school construction projects.
