Newtown Board Mulls Plans For Sandy Hook School

Posted: Updated:

 

NEWTOWN, Conn. (AP) - Newtown, Conn., officials are meeting to discuss what to do with the elementary school where 20 first-graders and six educators were shot to death in December, but they might not vote.

A consultant for the town said a task force of 28 local elected officials likely wouldn't make a decision Friday night and will return for another meeting next week.

Residents have expressed mixed opinions on what should be done with Sandy Hook Elementary School.

The task force has narrowed a list of choices to renovating or rebuilding on the school site or building a new school on property down the street.

The 430 surviving students are attending a renovated school renamed Sandy Hook Elementary School in the neighboring town of Monroe.
