Information for potential candidates for the MSBA’s Accelerated Repair Program

Generally, it is premature for a city, town, or regional school district to authorize and appropriate funding for a feasibility study or a project that has not been approved by the MSBA.  However, the MSBA understands that given the expedited schedule for the Accelerated Repair Program combined with local meeting schedules, certain cities, towns, and districts may decide to vote to authorize and appropriate funding for a proposed accelerated repair project or feasibility study in advance of potential MSBA approval of a project or an invitation into the MSBA’s Accelerated Repair Program.  Cities, towns, and districts that decide to vote at this early stage should be aware that they are proceeding at their own risk and that the MSBA may not ultimately approve their proposed accelerated repair project. 

Further, the Accelerated Repair Program is competitive and the MSBA will determine, in its sole discretion, which Statements of Interest will be considered to participate.  NOT ALL POTENTIAL REPAIR PROJECTS WILL BE INVITED INTO THE ACCELERATED REPAIR PROGRAM.  Cities, towns, and districts that are considering voting to authorize and appropriate funding for a proposed accelerated repair project or feasibility study in advance of being invited into the Accelerated Repair Program should evaluate this decision carefully.
 
Cities, towns, and districts that decide to vote ahead of project approval or an invitation into the MSBA’s Accelerated Repair Program should use the Accelerated Repair Program vote language below.
