When Marlborough Public Schools students mark their last day on Thursday, June 21, two of the district's schools will undergo renovations designed to boost energy efficiency and replace outdated systems.
Last week, a Patch reader spotted the Green School Renovations sign at Kane and inquired about the work.
The Massachusetts School Building Authority approved the work at the two schools in November. MHS will receive $3.8 million in state funding for what is an overal project of $7.1 million.
Work at MHS will include a new roof and window replacements, as well as new doors and a new central boiler system.
The project at Kane is smaller in scale, with a total price tag of slightly more than $1 milion and an MSBA reimbursement of $550,000. Kane will also be getting new windows and doors and other energy upgrades.
The MSBA set aside $300 million for green school projects last year and has invited communities to take part in the competitive grant-making process.
