Carver

Board backs new school statement

The School Committee last week moved to launch another effort to seek state funds for construction of a new elementary school. The committee voted unanimously in favor of a “statement of interest” to the Massachusetts School Building Authority, which had agreed to allow the town to renew its request for state assistance. The authority had ranked the town high on its priority list for assistance to replace the deteriorating elementary school, but Carver voters failed on several occasions to back a school building plan. After appeals from parents for a new school, however, Carver schools revived the project this year. The statement of interest, prepared by Superintendent Liz Sorrell, still needs the approval of the Board of Selectmen before it can be submitted to the state.
