Facility Needs for Middle Schools
LPS Middle Schools: I hope you are aware that 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 is preparing 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.
The School Committee considered and approved the Statements of Interest (SOIs) for both middle schools at a special afternoon meeting on Thursday, January 19. The School Committee will have a joint meeting with the Select Board on Monday, January 23 at 6:00 pm when they will seek the Select Board's support of the SOIs.
The SOIs which will be presented to the Select Board are posted below.
The School Committee held Public Forums on October 18th and 19th to collect input from the community regarding the substantial facility needs of the middle schools. A link to the video from October 19th can be found here. Below is the Power Point presentation shown by Superintendent O'Shea.
