New Fairfield moves ahead with school plans

The school board voted unanimously Wednesday night to ask the selectmen if the district could seek state funding for both projects, which would cost $109.4 million without the grant. The plan is to build a $79.3 million high school on the site of the existing campus and construct a $30.1 million addition onto Meeting House Hill School. The state grant would bring the cost to the town down to $59.5 million for the high school and $23.4 million for the addition. The vote comes about a week after the New England Association of Schools and Colleges placed the high school on warning for its accreditation, citing the poor facilities.
