Franklin school officials say they plan to file an updated Statement of Interest with the Massachusetts School Building Authority as they move forward with a request for state funding toward a renovation or reconstruction of the town's 37-year-old high school.
Officials say that state aid for such a project will be crucial, since the town cannot afford to foot the full bill for a $100 million renovation or a $130 million new high school, cost estimates that were released by the town's architect earlier this year.

Assistant Superintendent Maureen Sabolinksi is currently working with the state to review the town's previous Statement of Interest.
"This is an opportunity for us to update and review our project," she said. "Over the next few weeks, we'll be reviewing the feedback and looking to see what additional information we would like to provide, as well as looking at the project as a whole and seeing where to go with it."
