Major building projects continue as New London students return to school

The district’s nearly $160 million two-campus project pushes on as construction at the high school and middle school continues. The project is expected to be completed in 2024. The state is reimbursing the city for 80% of the cost of most parts of the project. Kate McCoy, assistant superintendent of magnet pathways and district operations, said one-half of Bennie Dover Middle School is complete. The area of the former Chapman Technical High School, the oldest section of the campus and built in the 1930s, awaits demolition, McCoy said. Ritchie said the district is rebuilding handicap accessible playgrounds at three elementary schools‒ Nathan Hale, Winthrop and C.B. Jennings‒ using ESSER funds. Installation at Nathan Hale is expected to start this month.
