Town Meetings and voters in both Concord and Carlisle approved debt exclusion overrides for a $1.3 million feasibility study that will start the building committee's work.
The regional high school has been approved for repair by the Massachusetts School Building Authority, which means the town may receive up to 30 percent reimbursement for the project.
