"There's a lot going on with Foster School" was the good news from School Building Committee Vice Chair Ray Estes at a recent School Committee meeting.
His update follows the Massachusetts School Building Authority's invitation to the Town of Hingham several months ago to enter into the Feasibility Phase of the Core Building Program.
The town is working collaboratively with the MSBA to explore options to either renovate/add on to or replace Foster School with a new building with the hope of potentially qualifying for partial reimbursement from the state.
An owner's project manager is in place, and selection of an architect is the next step. The building committee will continue to keep the community posted about new developments.
If the town is awarded partial reimbursement and the project moves forward, the targeted completion date is Fall 2024.
