LEWISTON, Maine (AP) - The school committee in Lewiston, Maine, says the district is ready for one of the largest elementary schools in the state.

The committee agreed Tuesday with a redistricting panel’s recommendation to build a 950-student elementary school and take students out of other overcrowded elementary schools. The Sun Journal (https://bit.ly/1zAETWv ) says Lewiston voters might vote on the new school proposal this year or in 2016. The state would pay for 95 percent of the construction of the new school.

Some parents say they prefer the idea of replacing and renovating existing smaller schools. A site committee will study and recommend where to build the larger school. That could happen in the spring.
