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 Staff Sergeant James J. Hill School. The MSBA is contributing up to $29.5 million for the 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 Revere students.”
The new Hill School, which serves 690 students in Kindergarten through grade 5, is organized around a central two-story lobby, which shares views into the cafeteria, media center and administration area. The school cafeteria offers a scenic view of a neighborhood landmark. The MSBA will contribute a maximum grant of up to $29,551,048 toward the 103,650 square foot facility.
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.
