    Welcome to the Minuteman School Building Committee website. All the information related to the Minuteman School Building Project may be found here. All information generated prior to May 1, 2017 can be found in our Archive. This includes engineering and technical reports, budget reports, correspondence, legal opinions, and records of meetings accumulated over a period of 7-8 years. 
     
    In Construction
    We are now in Module 7,  the Construction phase of the MSBA process. The site has been prepared.  Tree removal, land reshaping, concrete foundation pouring, and steel erection can be expected as the project proceeds.
     

    The Project Schedule
    Our new educational facility is being designed to meet the career and technical education needs of our District and our future students.  We anticipate that Minuteman will open the new building for the academic year beginning in the Fall of 2019.  At that time, the current building will be taken down, with project completion by October, 2020.  Read more on the anticipated schedule here.
