Now, the community is deciding what to do with the building. A task force decided unanimously Friday to tear down Sandy Hook Elementary School and rebuild a new school on the same site. Citizens will have the chance to vote on the team’s decision. Members of the force say emotional impact was a factor when coming to their conclusion. The task force says they hope that state and federal grants will cover 100% of the funding for the project. They hope to have the school finished by 2016.
