Superintendent Mark Masterson said Maynard High School's accreditation status should be safe after Town Meeting approved $276,000 in repairs and upgrades to the dilapidated building.
Last year, Maynard High was placed on probation by the New England Association of Schools and Colleges, in large part due to the condition of its facilities. NEASC, a private nonprofit group, has asked for regular progress reports from the town as major milestones are reached.
"I will be writing a letter [to NEASC] letting them know the community's response to the problems," said Masterson. "We are very hopeful moving forward."
Maynard High requires major renovations, possibly a new school entirely, to be removed from probation, school officials say.
