Danbury officials are still awaiting approval of a state grant for the $99-million Career Academy project.  City officials haven't heard back yet on the application to receive 80-percent reimbursement on the project, but Danbury and the Board of Education are starting to develop academic and construction plans by purchasing the property at the Summit on the City's westside.  The man in charge of school construction projects is on paid leave from the state due to a personal issue.  A Director for the Academy would be charged with developing partnerships in the area to give students relevant experiences outside of school.  The facility is set to open for the start of the 2024 academic year and will serve 1400 middle and high school students, in 6 academies with 24 pathways.  The curriculum ill include internships, job shadowing, early college and other similar experiences.
