Accelerated Repair Program

As a result of the lessons learned from its Green Repair Program, the MSBA has instituted an Accelerated Repair Program (“Program”) as part of its ongoing repair program. The Program is primarily for the repair and/or replacement of roofs, windows/doors, and/or boilers with the potential to include additional systems as may be determined by the MSBA contingent upon available funding and capacity in the capital pipeline. The Program focuses on the preservation of existing assets by performing energy-efficient and cost-saving upgrades, which will result in direct operational savings for school districts. In order to maximize the impact of this Program, districts are required to use pre-selected consultants. In addition, districts are required to appropriate funding quickly in order to adhere to an accelerated project schedule.

Districts that have repair needs in their school facilities that inhibit the cost-effective and energy-efficient delivery of the district’s educational program expressed interest in the Accelerated Repair Program through the MSBA’s Statement of Interest ("SOI") process. Since 2010, districts have been participating in our Repair Programs as indicated in the table below:
