Bassick High project back on state’s priority list for funding

After failing to make Connecticut’s school construction priority list in December, which would ensure the state covers the bulk of the building costs, a group of state lawmakers added Bassick back.
As reported earlier this month, the already delayed, $129 million effort to relocate the aged Bassick from the West End to a new South End site faced another setback when the proposal did not in December make it onto the school construction priority list because of questions from Connecticut’s Department of Administrative Services. The department oversees grants for school projects. The effort to replace the nearly 100-year-old Bassick has suffered fits and starts.
