Newtown Will Build a New Sandy Hook Elementary School at Existing Site

newtown-schoolNEWTOWN, CT — A new Sandy Hook Elementary School building will be built at the site of the existing school, a task force of town leaders decided Friday night.

The school, at a cost of almost $60 million, will take the place of the old building, where a mass shooting Dec. 14 took the lives of 26 children and educators.

The next steps will include having the board of education draft education specifications for the new elementary school and figuring out how to pay for it.

Funding sources will include substantial contributions from the state and perhaps the federal government.

The town must provide a maximum possible price to the legislature by early June for bonding purposes.
