Dear Belmont Public Schools Parents and Guardians:
I am writing to inform you that I received a phone call from the Massachusetts School Building Authority (MSBA) with the following update:
- The MSBA staff have recommended that the Belmont High School application move forward in the process to the MSBA Board for approval.
- We now await the decision of the MSBA Board, who will meet on January 27, 2016, to act on this recommendation.
This is great news for the Town of Belmont as it represents a unique opportunity for our community as we have submitted an application for this project, annually, for over 10 years.
Although this is not a final decision – it is very good to know that our proposal is moving forward in the process. Like many other communities, we will now await the final decision of the MSBA Board that will be rendered on January 27, 2016.
Have a wonderful holiday season.
John P. Phelan
Superintendent of Schools
