McCarthy, MSBA Executive Director/Deputy CEO, announced today that the MSBA Board of Directors has invited three Massachusetts school districts to collaborate in conducting Feasibility Studies for potential MSBA school construction projects.

"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:
