On or about May 1, 2020, the Town of Clinton submitted a Statement of Interest to the MSBA for the Clinton Middle School. The MSBA is an independent public authority that administers and funds a program for grants to eligible cities, towns, and regional school districts for school construction and renovation projects. The MSBA’s grant program is discretionary, and no city, town, or regional school district has any entitlement to any funds from the MSBA. At the March 2, 2022, Board of Directors meeting, the MSBA voted to issue an invitation to the Town of Clinton to conduct a feasibility study for this Statement of Interest to identify and study possible solutions and, through a collaborative process with the MSBA, reach a mutually agreed upon solution. The MSBA has not approved a Project and the results of this feasibility study may or may not result in an approved Project. 
Clinton Middle School currently has a grade 5-8 configuration. As a result of a collaborative analysis with the MSBA of enrollment projections and space capacity needs for the Clinton Middle School, the Town of Clinton acknowledges and agrees that the design of alternatives, which may be evaluated as a part of the feasibility study for the Clinton Middle School, shall be based in accordance with the following:   

  • Enrollment for Grades 4-8, in one school facility: 700 students  

  • Enrollment for Grades 5-8, in one school facility: 550 students 

Existing Conditions

Clinton Middle School opened in 1976 and it currently has a square footage of 133,200. The school sits on a large site, which is shared with the Clinton High School on approximately 24 acres of land. It is anticipated that any new construction project would still be located on this shared site. 
Currently CMS houses approximately 580 students in grades 5 through 8, however, the middle school  previously housed grades 4 through 8. The fourth grade was moved to the Clinton Elementary School for  the 2018-2019 school year to reduce overcrowding at CMS and to maximize the number of students in the  most current facility. CMS was originally built with an open concept design and over the years walls have been added to these spaces which has created oddly shaped and inefficient classrooms.
