Abington

School buildings to be studied

Continue reading below

A team is being put together to conduct a $800,000 feasibility study examining Abington public schools for potential construction or renovation. In late November, the Abington School Building Committee, along with the Massachusetts School Building Authority, chose Knight, Bagge & Anderson Inc. of Charlestown as project manager for the study. Now, the two agencies are in the selection process for a designer architect, according to Abington assistant Superintendent Felicia Moschella. The study will inspect current school buildings, review educational programs, and assess the needs of the community. The goal is to revive the aging schools, which have not had any major construction in over 50 years. Residents voted in April to help finance the inspection, and will foot $360,000 of the bill, while the MSBA will pay $440,000. Superintendent Peter Schafer said one solution could be a middle school-high school combination in a new building that could “potentially set Abington up for decades to come.’’ The feasibility study is expected to take a year to a year and a half.
