State Treasurer Deborah B. Goldberg, Chair of the Massachusetts School Building Authority (“MSBA”), and Maureen Valente, MSBA Chief Executive Officer, announced today that the MSBA Board of Directors has invited six Massachusetts school districts to collaborate in conducting Feasibility Studies for potential MSBA school construction projects.

“These Feasibility Studies will carefully examine all potential solutions to help us develop the most effective plan,” stated Treasurer Goldberg. “We look forward to partnering with the Districts to move these potential projects forward.”
 
The Board of Directors approved Feasibility Study invitations for the following schools:

District School
Attleboro Attleboro High School

“We are committed to working with these districts to help solve the problems identified at these six schools,” said Chief Executive Officer Valente. “Our partnership with local officials will ensure the best solutions for the districts’ students.”
 
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 1,650 site visits to more than 250 school districts as part of its due diligence process and has made over $11.7 billion in reimbursements for school construction projects.
