NEWTOWN, Conn. - Its been nearly five months since the horrific shooting in Newtown Connecticut but there is now a plan in place for the future of Sandy Hook Elementary School.
Saturday, a 28-member task force of elected officials voted unanimously to tear down the school where 20 students and six teachers were shot and killed.
A new school will be built on the same site.
"Given the factors of everything we looked at and the most critical key is time, I think it's almost self-fulfilling that it's coming back," said Peter Barresi a Sandy Hook parent.
The task force received 40 possible options for the new building sites.
But they finally decided against moving the school to a new location and also decided against renovation.
