West Haven (Conn.) district receives $24 million to replace its oldest elementary school

June 17, 2021
The 112-year-old Washington Elementary will be replaced by a modern facility.

Washington Elementary, the oldest school in the West Haven (Conn.) district, will be torn and replaced with a new facility.

WTNH-TV reports that the district is receiving a $24 million state grant to pay for construction of a replacement school.

Washington is 112 years old and has about 400 students. The facility lacks modern features, such as an elevator. Its bathrooms are in the school's basement.

There is no word yet on the ground breaking, but the construction on the project is expected to take three years.

The construction funds are part of a $400 million grant program for school facilities statewide.
