MSBA Helps Cut the Ribbon on Auburn Middle School

August 29, 2015

Jack McCarthy, Executive Director of the Massachusetts School Building Authority (“MSBA”), today joined state and local officials at a ribbon cutting ceremony for the new Auburn Middle School. The MSBA is contributing a maximum grant of up to $20,715,999 of eligible expenses toward this $41.6 million project.

“As a result of the successful collaboration between the MSBA and the District, students will get a completely up-to-date learning environment,” said Executive Director McCarthy. “This is a down payment on the academic excellence of Auburn students.”

The new, 100,395 square-foot facility replaces the previous Auburn Middle School, which was built in 1959.  Auburn Middle School serves 560 students in grades six through eight.

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 1,600 site visits to more than 250 school districts as part of its due diligence process and has made over $11.5 billion in reimbursements for school construction projects.
