A joint meeting of the Newtown Board of Education and Public Buildings Site Commission will be held May 14th to review plans for the new Sandy Hook Elementary School.
According to minutes of the Board's meeting this week, the new size of the school is projected to be 86,000 square feet.
There were several changes discussed including elimination of bleachers in the gym, making for a smaller gym. Ssmaller pre-k classrooms based on estimated class size was also proposed. The minutes say designers want to eliminate lockers for 4th graders, replacing them with cubbies in their classrooms similar to other grades.
The second proposed computer room will be replaced by laptop carts.
