SPRINGFIELD, Mass. (AP) - The Massachusetts School Building Authority says they plan to foot 80 percent of the bill to replace a 118-year-old elementary school in Springfield’s North End section.

The Springfield Republican reports (https://bit.ly/1NFeH0C ) Mayor Domenic Sarno and Superintendent of Schools Daniel Warwick announced that a new $35 million school has been proposed to replace Brightwood Elementary School on Plainfield Street.

Officials say plans for the construction of the new school will begin in July.

Sarno says the MSBA’s support for the city has never waned and “once again they have come to the aid of Springfield in a meaningful and significant way.”

With city council approval, the city will fund the remaining 20 percent of the new school’s cost.
