The Revere High School Building Committee was formed as an independent committee to act on behalf of Revere Public School District to initiate, manage, and oversee the Revere High School Feasibility Study in collaboration with the Massachusetts School Building Authority (“MSBA”), Revere Public School District, and the community as a whole. The committee is made up of school committee members, members of the school district administration, many of the committee members are also parents in our District.
Our goal is to determine the most appropriate solution for the Revere High School in the most fiscally responsible, sustainable, flexible, and educationally appropriate manner as it progresses through the Feasibility Study process.
We typically meet twice each month, and we welcome questions, feedback, and community involvement every step of the way.

The Massachusetts School Building Authority (“MSBA”) is a quasi-independent government authority created to reform the process of funding capital improvement projects in the Commonwealth’s public schools. The MSBA strives to work with local communities to create affordable, sustainable, and energy-efficient schools across Massachusetts.
The Legislature created the MSBA in 2004 to replace the former school building assistance program administered by the Department of Education (now the Department of Elementary and Secondary Education).
The MSBA, which has a dedicated revenue stream of one penny of the state’s 6.25-percent sales tax, is collaborating with municipalities to equitably invest in finding the right-sized, most fiscally responsible and educationally appropriate solutions to create safe, sound, and sustainable learning environments.
The MSBA has made more than $13.7 billion in reimbursements to cities, towns, and regional school districts for school construction projects. Instead of waiting years for reimbursement, districts now receive payments from the MSBA as costs are incurred, usually within 15 days of submitting a request through the MSBA’s online Pro-Pay System.
To fulfill its mission of bringing reform and innovation to the school building process, the MSBA has accomplished the following:
- Since 2004, the MSBA has made $13.7 billion in payments to cities, towns and regional school districts
- The MSBA’s fully-funded Commissioning process has a total value of over $28 million in work orders
- The MSBA has completed final audits of 1,167 projects, totaling over $18.7 billion in submitted costs
- Since its inception, the MSBA has participated in or is currently working on, over 600 projects state-wide
- Currently, there are a total of 99 districts, representing 220 projects, either active or completed in the Accelerated Repair Program
- Through partnering with districts, the MSBA has improved learning facilities for over 600,000 students across the Commonwealth
- The MSBA has made over 1,750 site visits to more than 250 school districts as part of the MSBA’s review and due diligence process
- The MSBA has developed a data-based enrollment projection methodology in order to build right-size schools
