Replacing the high school roof

The Massachusetts School Building Authority recently invited the Wareham public schools to participate in its “accelerated repair” program, a funding initiative that provides state money to fix roofs, windows, and boilers in schools. That means the Wareham schools could potentially be reimbursed some of the costs of replacing the roof at Wareham High School. But it’s not a done deal yet, according to authority spokesman Dan Collins. The authority must review the scope and budget of the project and then vote to approve the plans, he said. Collins said the authority’s accelerated repair program provides state funding for these kinds of projects because they can extend the life of the school building and save money over the long run. “An ounce of prevention is worth pound of cure,” he said.
