Facility Needs for Middle Schools
LPS Middle Schools: The Longmeadow School Committee is actively working with the Select Board and other stakeholders to ensure that Longmeadow middle schools’ substantial facility needs are addressed cost effectively and in a manner that provides future students with safe, up-to-date learning environments. To this end, the District prepared Statements of Interest (“SOIs”) under the MA School Building Authority’s core program. Successful applications to the MSBA’s core program provide partial funding for extensive repairs, renovations, addition/renovations, and new school construction.
April 13, 2021 - The Longmeadow School Committee received an updated conditions report from Colliers Project Leaders.

Both, the School Committee and the Town Select Board considered and approved the Statements of Interest (SOIs) for both middle schools. The latest Statements of Interests were submitted in May, 2021.
On March 2, 2022, the MA School Building Authority Board of Directors voted to invite Longmeadow into the MSBA’s Eligibility Period. During the 270-day Eligibility Period, the District will work with the MSBA to fulfill several requirements including forming a building committee, completing a district enrollment study, and executing an agreement to complete a feasibility study. Upon completion of these requirements the District would be considered for an invitation into the Feasibility Study phase of the MSBA capital pipeline.
