Dear SPS Community-
I would like to provide you with exciting news about the South building project.
Today, at their Board of Directors Meeting, the Massachusetts School Building Authority (MSBA) invited Stoughton into the “Eligibility Phase” of the grant program that would bring a new elementary school building to the South area of town. The aging South Elementary School has been at the top of Stoughton’s priority list for several years. With significant accessibility, water infiltration and mechanical issues, and small rooms that don’t meet the needs of our many, varied learners, the South building can no longer provide the services our students and staff deserve.
Stoughton was one of only fifteen districts invited into the program this year. During the Eligibility Phase, the District will complete several tasks in preparation for a Feasibility Study which will examine Stoughton’s programmatic and space needs along with available land where a potential new elementary school would be located.
While there will be much planning and work ahead, I am pleased to celebrate this good news with the SPS community today. Thank you for your continued support, and Congratulations Stoughton!
Dr. John Marcus, Superintendent of Schools
