TRENTON, N.J. (AP) - State officials are recommending replacing Trenton’s 82-year-old Central High School.

The Schools Development Authority initially proposed repairing the structure, which has been in a state of decay for years.

Authority chief Charles McKenna says he’s now decided the best course would be to build a new school that retains elements of the existing building. Plans call for keeping the school’s clock tower and auditorium while constructing new academic wings.

Trenton’s school board will have to approve the plan and demolition would begin before the end of this year.

The school serves more than 1,800 students.
