The state Department of Administrative Services is holding a meeting today with Region 12 school officials about the planned AgriScience academy at Shepaug Valley High School. The state agency needs to sign off on plans so the district can send the project out to bid. The agriculture and STEM school would open next fall to students from Region 12, Danbury, Brookfield, New Fairfield, New Milford, Newtown and Sherman. A pre-bid walkthrough will be held in mid-September, if approval is given today. Coupled with a science lab renovation project, the price tag is pegged at about 34-point-4 million dollars. The state will pay about 24-million of the cost.
