Newtown Panel: Tear Down Sandy Hook, Rebuild
by News


NEWTOWN, Conn. (AP) - Officials in Newtown, Conn. say the district should tear down the elementary school where 20 first-graders and six educators were shot to death in December and construct a new building on the property.

A task force of 28 town elected officials unanimously recommended the plan Friday night after residents expressed mixed opinions on what should be done with Sandy Hook Elementary School. The proposal now goes to the local school board, which has final authority.

The panel had narrowed a list of choices to renovating or rebuilding on the school site or building a new school on property down the street. A study found the cost of rebuilding on the same site would be $57 million.

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