The Danbury High School expansion project, creating the Freshman Academy, is on schedule and on budget. 


The DHS 2020 project includes construction of a theater, two music classrooms, a new entrance way and an expansion of the existing cafeteria.  Most work is completed, except on the theater.  The Newstimes reports that installation of seats, stage equipment and other furnishing will be done this summer. 


All Danbury Public Schools will start after Labor Day for the upcoming school year.  The High School will have 5 new teaching positions, two new special ed teachers, a nurse and three new custodians.  If the $53.3 million project is done under budget, the balance will reportedly be put toward other campus improvements like resurfacing the outdoor track.
