BOSTON - State Treasurer Deborah B. Goldberg, Chair of the Massachusetts School Building Authority ("MSBA"), and Jack McCarthy, MSBA Executive Director and Deputy CEO, announced today that the MSBA Board of Directors has approved up to $54,303,504 for 35 Accelerated Repair Projects in 20 school districts.
"The Accelerated Repair Program allows us to make critical repairs to more schools in less time," said Treasurer Deborah B. Goldberg. "By improving the learning environment for our children, the Program also makes schools more energy efficient and generates significant cost savings."
The main goals of the Accelerated Repair Program are to improve learning environments for children and teachers, reduce energy use, and generate cost savings for districts. The program provides funding for the repair or replacement of roofs, windows, and boilers in schools that are otherwise structurally, functionally, and educationally sound.
"The MSBA continues to partner with Massachusetts communities in the ongoing work of upgrading their public schools," Executive Director McCarthy said. "These improvements to school facilities can only enhance students’ ability to excel in the classroom."
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 1,750 site visits to more than 250 school districts as part of its due diligence process and has made over $12.4 billion in reimbursements for school construction projects.
