Dear Parents/Guardians/Community Members:
This morning, representatives of Hopkinton’s School Committee (Nancy Alvarez Burdick and Ellen Scordino [not pictured]), Board of Selectmen (John Mosher), Center School Principal Lauren Dubeau, Elementary School Building Committee (Mike Shepard), HPS Director of Finance Ralph Dumas, State Representative Carolyn Dykema, and District Director for Senator Spilka, Puja Mehta (not pictured), joined me at the MSBA Board of Directors meeting in Boston. I am pleased to announce that we have received an invitation into the Massachusetts School Building Authority’s (MSBA) eligibility period. Over the next few days we expect a letter confirming this invitation and providing additional detail.
Preliminary Eligibility Requirements will need to be completed in order for us to proceed. Once completed, the MSBA will review our documents and consider a vote to invite the Town of Hopkinton into the Capital pipeline, allowing us to begin the Feasibility Study Process. The MSBA Board of Directors noted Hopkinton’s representation at their meeting this morning, stating how important it is to have such unified support.
Cathy MacLeod, Ed.D.
