The Weymouth School Building Committee was formed by Mayor Hedlund in August, 2016 after the Massachusetts School Building Authority (MSBA) voted Weymouth into the Eligibility Period for the Maria Weston Chapman Middle School building project. 

Weymouth is working with the MSBA to determine the most cost effective and educationally appropriate preferred solution for the Chapman Middle School.

This webpage is managed by the Weymouth School Building Committee to keep the public informed about the project and process.

The role of the Weymouth School Building Committee includes:

  • Disseminating information about the Chapman Middle School building project to the community.
  • Promoting community outreach and encouraging public input throughout the process.
  • Providing the necessary information to the Massachusetts School Building Authority (MSBA) through all phases of the project.
  • Making thoughtful project decisions on a new or renovated Chapman Middle School.

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.
