Our Mission:  Partner with Massachusetts communities to support the design and construction of educationally-appropriate, flexible, sustainable, and cost-effective public school facilities.

2016 "My Ideal School" Contest

The MSBA is pleased to announce the 10th annual “My Ideal School” contest! The primary goal of the “My Ideal School” contest is to promote discussion among students and teachers as to how thoughtful design and construction of schools in Massachusetts supports student engagement and 21st century learning. 

Vote Requirements

The MSBA has issued Vote Bulletins to inform cities, towns, and regional school districts of the requirements for warrant articles, motions, orders, and votes related to any potential projects that may be eligible for MSBA funding. 


Our Geographic Information System (GIS) is a comprehensive mapping tool used to view MSBA projects across the Commonwealth. Through this system, you can view individual district project information as well as projects by type (e.g., New Construction, Repair, Model School).
