The city of Springfield, Mass., is planning to replace the existing Putnam Vocational Technical High School. The state of Massachusetts has agreed to pay 90 percent of the cost of the $120 million facility, which will be built on a field next to the existing school. In 2002, state officials said that the existing Putnam, built in 1938, was in poor condition. City officials hope the new facility will open in 2011.
