In 2012, the City of Chelsea and Chelsea Public Schools received an invitation from the Massachusetts School Building Authority to participate in a process to determine if the City was eligible for state assistance to renovate or replace the Clark Avenue School. (Public Presentation).
This process anticipates the formation of a School Building Committee. The role of the School Building Committee depends on local customs and charter authority.
