MSBA Invites 25 Schools into Accelerated Repair Program

18 Districts will benefit from targeted school repairs

BOSTON - State Treasurer and Receiver General Deborah B. Goldberg, Chair of the Massachusetts School Building Authority (“MSBA”), and John K. McCarthy, MSBA Executive Director/Deputy CEO, announced that the MSBA Board of Directors invited 25 schools into the Authority’s Accelerated Repair Program. 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 for 2020 will provide funding for the repair or replacement of roofs, windows and boilers in schools that are otherwise structurally, functionally and educationally sound.

“The Accelerated Repair Program allows us to partner with school districts on much-needed repairs that can greatly extend a school’s lifespan,” said Treasurer Goldberg. “Besides making the learning environment more comfortable for our schoolchildren, these repairs also make our schools more energy efficient and generate substantial cost savings. It’s a win-win for everyone involved.”

“The Accelerated Repair Program directly benefits thousands of children in these communities by sustaining their infrastructure in a cost effective manner,” said Executive Director/Deputy CEO McCarthy.
