Project Update

At the May 25, 2010 Special Town Meeting, a $300,000 appropriation was approved to fund the feasibility / schematic design phase of the project. The state is expected to pay for 34.58% of eligible costs.

On November 2, 2010, the Massachusetts School Building Authority (MSBA) and the Town of Brookline, through the Designer Selection Panel (DSP), recommended that a contract be awarded to Miller Dyer Spears, Inc. for the design of the Heath School project. The contract was awarded on November 16, 2010.

On March 30, 2011, the MSBA Board voted to approve the Heath School project for $8.8 million (including design), with the State's maximum share being $3,380,588. On September 27, 2011, the Board of Selectmen awarded a contract to Nauset Construction Corporation for the project.

The additional classrooms were opened at the start of the 2012-2013 school year.
