That the Superintendent's Recommendation #20-05, Authorization for the Superintendent to submit to the Massachusetts School Building Authority the Statement of Interest Form dated January 21, 2020 for the Cambridgeport School Building Windows Located at 89 Elm Street. Recommendation: That in accordance with the requirements of the Massachusetts School Building Authority the School Committee enter an order containing the following resolution:
Resolved: Having convened in an open meeting on January 21, 2020, prior to the SOI submission closing date, the Cambridge School Committee of Cambridge, Massachusetts, in accordance with its charter, by-laws, and ordinances, has voted to authorize the Superintendent to submit to the Massachusetts School Building Authority the Statement of Interest Form dated no later than February 14, 2020 for the Cambridgeport School located at 89 Elm Street, Cambridge, which describes and explains the following deficiencies and the priority category for which an application may be submitted to the Massachusetts School Building Authority in the future:The funds are sought to be used for the replacement of the building's windows.The Elm Street building's windows are currently forty years old, with worn out balances, springs and operating sash hardware. Cold air leakage frequently overwhelms the heating system, making it difficult to maintain classroom temperatures on cold days.There is much loss of energy due to the age and construction of existing windows.This project falls under priority category number 5, which is for the replacement, renovation, or modernization of school facility systems, such as roofs, windows, boilers, heating and ventilation systems, to increase energy conservation and decrease energy related costs in a school facility, as determined in the judgement of the Authority.The Cambridge School Committee hereby further specifically acknowledges that by submitting this Statement of Interest Form, the Massachusetts School Building Authority in no way guarantees the acceptance or the approval of an application, the awarding of a grant or any other funding commitment from the Massachusetts School Building Authority, or commits the City/School District to filing an application for funding with the Massachusetts School Building Authority.
