When North Quincy High School underwent a renovation and addition in 1978-80, one of the enhancements to the then half-century-old building was a set of new windows.

More than three decades later, school officials say those windows that once helped give the building new life are themselves in pressing need of replacement.

Now, Quincy has an opportunity to secure state funds to replace the windows not only at North Quincy but also in the Merrymount and Wollaston elementary schools, where they are similarly outmoded.

The three schools are among 13 from five area districts that were recently invited by the Massachusetts School Building Authority into its Accelerated Repair Program.

In addition to Quincy, the local schools newly entering the program are in Easton, Pembroke, Randolph, and Stoughton.
