Town of Carver

The District, the Owner’s Project Manager, and design team presented an overview of the options studied during the Feasibility Study and the District’s preferred solution to replace the existing Carver Elementary School on the existing site. The FAS, MSBA staff, and the District discussed: 1) the educational program and its relation to the proposed building layout; 2) progress of the conceptual design; 3) utilization of the proposed multi-purpose room and cafeteria; 4) the interior layout of the building and flexibility for potential variations in enrollment; 5) pre-kindergarten space needs; 6) handicap accessibility and coverage of entrances; and 7) environmental concerns related to wells and adjacent cranberry bogs.
The FAS requested additional information regarding: 1) the District’s Educational Program; 2) the progress of the conceptual design; 3) utilization of the multi-purpose room and cafeteria; and 4) development of the media center. 

MSBA staff is currently working with the District to reach a mutually agreeable solution to recommend to the MSBA’s Board of Directors.
