What is the role of the Building Committee?
The Pierce School Building Committee was appointed by the Select Board in September 2019. In partnership with the Massachusetts School Building Authority (MSBA), the committee is made up of parents, community members who live near Pierce, public officials from numerous Town boards, and school department and Town staff. The Building Committee advises and supports the Building Commission, Select Board, and School Committee on the design and construction of the school, oversees the project budget and schedule, and coordinates with town agencies.
The Building Committee is also responsible for outreach to PSB staff, families, and community members and informing the public about the project’s overall progress during each specific phase of building development. The Building Committee serves for the duration of the project - from the Feasibility Design Phase all the way through construction.
