Greenwich’s Central Middle School rebuild will get about $15 million more than expected from state

Greenwich is slated to receive millions more than expected on the Central Middle School rebuild, thanks to the efforts of the town’s three state House representatives. Upping the reimbursement rate means the town will eventually get about $22 million back from Hartford, or about $14.7 million more than anticipated. Full reimbursement is contingent on project completion, audits and other approvals by the state, a process which generally takes years. CMS was briefly closed in 2022 after engineers found structural issues at the school and new cracks formed in April after a small earthquake shook the tri-state area. Construction at CMS is slated to start in December, with hopes of opening the new school in August 2026.
