East Windsor looks at several options to renovate or reconfigure its schools

With buildings built in the 1950s and ’60s and a declining student population, town and school officials are currently looking into how to renovate or even reconfigure the town’s schools. In February, a facilities study done by the Construction Solutions Group determined that Broad Brook Elementary, East Windsor Middle School, and East Windsor High School are too large for their current enrollment sizes based on state construction standards and guidelines. The options range from renovating all three schools as new and “right sizing” the buildings; consolidating the middle and high schools by using either building and moving the fifth grade to the elementary school; constructing three brand-new schools; renovating all three schools with their current sizes; or doing the needed renovations without changing the size of the schools. The costs range from $94 million to consolidate the middle and high schools using the high school building, to $196 million to renovating all three existing schools as new with their current square footage. Each project would be partially funded by the state.
