A Statement of Interest (SOI) was submitted in 2014, which was not supported. The SOI is the first step a District takes in seeking MSBA participation in a school building project. The SOI includes a report from the District identifying deficiencies in the building(s) the Town is looking to add to, renovate or replace. The SOI is then reviewed by the MSBA for eligibility. A second SOI was submitted in March 2015. The timetable to receive a response is earliest December. Consensus Plan suggests that conceptual planning moves forward in parallel, but not move so quickly that we get ahead of the MSBA. If MSBA does not support the project, the District can entertain moving forward on its own.
