May Community Forum - May 23, 2024

This is a reminder that we will be hosting our third community forum for the High School Building Project this Thursday, May 23 at 6:00 pm in the High School Auditorium. This forum will consist of an overview of the visioning process and Educational Plan that will inform the design of a new or renovated high school. The architects will also discuss the preliminary plans to use the existing site; how we are investigating traffic pattern issues and initial possible solutions; and finally, how we define buildable area within the site that allows the existing school to operate within either an addition renovation option or new building option.

On January 16, the district attended the Designer Selection Panel (DSP) at MSBA.

The official meeting results letter can be seen here.

On September 11, the district attended the OPM Review Panel at the MSBA, during which they considered our recommendation of Vertex as our Owner's Project Manager. On September 12, we were notified by MSBA that Vertex was approved - you can read the official approval letter here.

August 2023

On August 10, 2023, the School Building Committee voted to recommend The Vertex Companies to serve as their Owner's Project Manager (OPM). You can learn more about Vertex by reading their response to our Request for OPM Services.

To learn more about our selection and procurement process, please see attached our "Narrative of Selection Process" document that was submitted and approved by the MSBA.

May 2023 - North Attleborough invited into Feasibility Study Phase

NORTH ATTLEBOROUGH — Superintendent John Antonucci and the North Attleborough School Committee are pleased to announce that the Massachusetts School Building Authority (MSBA) has invited North Attleborough Public Schools into the Feasibility Phase for the North Attleborough High School Project.

The MSBA Board of Directors voted on Wednesday, April 26, to advance the North Attleborough High School proposal. Acceptance into this phase means the Town and District will collaborate with the MSBA on working toward the best solution to the problems identified for North Attleborough students.

The Feasibility Phase includes documenting existing conditions, generating a space summary, establishing design parameters and developing and evaluating renovation and construction alternatives.

The Feasibility Phase takes 18 to 24 months to complete. Work in this phase will be submitted to the MSBA, which will then consider whether to admit NAPS into its Design Phase.

“On behalf of the North Attleborough community, I want to thank the MSBA Board of Directors for their support of our high school building project,” said Superintendent Antonucci. “The current state of our 50-year-old building falls short in meeting the demands of a 21st-century education, and we appreciate the MSBA’s commitment to investing in modern facilities that foster innovation and excellence for all public school students. We are excited to work together in partnership with the MSBA team to transform our high school into a premier facility.”

Throughout the Feasibility Study and Schematic Design phase, the District will invite North Attleborough residents to participate in the design process to ensure that whatever type of project the district moves forward with best reflects the needs and wants of the community.

North Attleborough High School serves all North Attleborough students in grades 9-12, about 1,107 students. The building faces numerous issues due to its age including spaces that are inflexible and lack in capacity, which limits the District’s efforts to effectively deliver a broad range of programming to all students.

Currently, the District and the School Building Committee are collaborating with the MSBA to select an Owner’s Project Manager (OPM) and a design firm. It is expected that an OPM will begin in the fall.

For more information about the Feasibility Study Phase, please refer to the MSBA Website: Module 3 - Feasibility Study

March 2022

At its March 2, 2022 Board of Directors’ Meeting, the Massachusetts School Building Authority (MSBA) voted to invite North Attleborough High School into the MSBA’s Eligibility Period. The Eligibility Period "formalizes and streamlines the beginning of the MSBA’S grant process and benefits the Town by providing a definitive schedule for the completion of the preliminary requirements , assisting with the determination of financial and community readiness, and identifying needs for planning and budgeting". North Attleborough High School was selected after five attempts.

Successful completion of all activities in the Eligibility Period will allow the Town to be eligible for an MSBA invitation to Feasibility Study. The 270-day Eligibility Period commenced on July 1, 2022 and ends on March 28, 2023.

Invitation into the Eligibility Period is not an Invitation to Feasibility Study. Moving forward in the MSBA’s process requires collaboration with the MSBA, and an invitation to Feasibility Study will require a further vote of the MSBA Board of Directors.
