Panel urges razing Newtown school

NEWTOWN, Conn. — A task force of elected officials in Newtown on Friday recommended tearing down Sandy Hook Elementary School, where 20 first-graders and six educators were slain in December, and rebuilding on the same site.

The group of 28 town elected officials voted unanimously for a plan that would construct a new building in the same location as the existing school. The proposal now goes to the local school board and then before voters as a referendum.
