School options narrowed

Holbrook’s Permanent School Building Committee narrowed the configuration options for a new school to three on Oct. 2. The options are grades pre-k through 12, 6 through 12, and pre-k through 8, according to Superintendent Patricia Lally. Pre-k through 12 appeared to be the most popular among members of the committee, she said, though the committee did not rank the choices. Members are working toward a Dec. 11 deadline to submit one choice to the Massachusetts School Building Authority. In related news, the school district has hired its first facilities manager, Michael Bolger Jr., to a fill a position the MSBA recommends be represented on the building committee, Lally said. Last year, then-Superintendent Joseph Baeta handled the facilities duties. Bolger said he recently earned a master’s degree in facilities management from Massachusetts Maritime Academy and previously worked in maintenance for the Brockton schools.
