The Massachusetts School Building Authority or MSBA has asked Plymouth town officials to confirm that they’re still interested in pursuing expansion or replacement of South High School.
The Select Board and School Committee will meet in joint session tonight to discuss the state’s offer to do a feasibility study for the South High School project. In order for this to go forward, Selectmen will need to reaffirm a 2006 town-wide vote that guaranteed local funding.
That vote included three projects: North and South High School and a Senior Center.
But the MSBA told town officials they needed to choose one school; they chose North High School and it opens in the fall.
South High School was built 25 years ago to handle twelve hundred students; about fourteen hundred will attend this fall. The building is in serious need of repair and this is noted yearly in accreditation reviews.
The joint meeting is at PCIS tonight at 7 p.m.
