Central Elementary School Invited to Join MSBA's CORE Program

Invitation Launches Next Phase of Planned Central School Building Project

EAST BRIDGEWATER - East Bridgewater Superintendent Elizabeth Legault and the East Bridgewater School Committee are excited to announce that Central Elementary School has been invited to join the eligibility period of the Massachusetts School Building Authority (MSBA) CORE grant program.  This invitation launches the dream of rebuilding or renovating Central School one step closer to reality.

Over the next two years, the district will work directly with the MSBA and the Town of East Bridgewater to conduct a feasibility study.  During this time a project manager and design firm will determine the most cost-effective and educationally appropriate design for a new or completely renovated school building.  

Since its 2004 inception, the MSBA has made over 1,750 site visits to more than 250 school districts as part of its due diligence process and has made over $16.2 billion in reimbursements for school construction projects.  This year, Central Elementary School was one of only 10 school districts invited to participate in the CORE Program.

“This is an exciting time for Central School and the entire East Bridgewater Public School Community”, said Superintendent Legault.

The East Bridgewater Public School District is committed to an open and transparent process and will provide multiple opportunities for public feedback. The District will provide regular updates on this project through ParentSquare and EBPS Website.
