Weathersfield School District Breaks Ground


The Weathersfield Local School District officially broke ground Sunday afternoon for its new $25 million school building.

The K-6 building will be on Niles Carver Road in Mineral Ridge.

In March of last year, voters passed a bond issue after four attempts. That allowed the district to raise the money to match funding offered from the state.

The district will pay 28 percent, about $7.5 million, while the state covers the other 72 percent.

“Words can’t really explain how excited we are here at Weathersfield,” said Weathersfield School District Superintendent, Damon Dohar. “This is a great opportunity, we’re taking three old schools and we’re creating two basically brand new schools. We’re refurbishing our high school making a 7-12 building, then Seaborn elementary will become a k-6 building.”

Dohar anticipates the new building being completed by next fall.

The old middle school on Route 46 will be demolished.

Classes should begin in the new K-6 school by the spring of 2015.
