Hingham School Building Committee members voted at their meeting Wednesday on a $1.1 million feasibility study budget for a new Foster Elementary School. School officials will submit the study budget to the Massachusetts School Building Authority’s school building program, a state program that helps school districts pay for renovations and rebuilding projects. It’s an important step towards a major rebuilding of the elementary school, which hasn’t seen an extensive renovation in almost fifty years. 

John W. Ferris. Director of Business and Support Services hopes the project will be on the Massachusetts School Building Authority’s December meeting agenda for a vote.
