South Shore Regional Vocational

Technical High School

Project Overview

On or about June 2, 2021, the Owner submitted a Statement of Interest (Attachment A) to the MSBA for South Shore Regional Vocational Technical High School. The MSBA is an independent public authority that administers and funds a program for grants to eligible cities, towns, and regional school districts for school construction and renovation projects. The MSBA’s grant program is discretionary, and no city, town, or regional school district has any entitlement to any funds from the MSBA. At the October 26, 2022 Board of Directors meeting, the MSBA voted to issue an invitation to the Owner to conduct a feasibility study for this Statement of Interest to identify and study possible solutions and, through a collaborative process with the MSBA, reach a mutually-agreed upon solution.

Since starting the feasibility and completing the first submission to the MSBA, the options of building layout and enrollment have been narrowed down from the original 30 versions, and the project team are currently studying options for an enrollment of 805 and 900 for the future building.
