NEWTOWN, Conn. (AP) _ Newtown officials will be continuing a debate on what to do with the school where 20 first-graders and six educators were killed in December.

A task force of 28 town elected officials is scheduled to meet again Friday night and may vote on a recommendation to the local school board. The issue eventually will go before voters at a referendum.

The panel has narrowed the choices to three: renovating Sandy Hook Elementary School, tearing it down and building a new school on the same property or tearing it down and building a new school on nearby property.

The task force struggled last Friday to move toward a recommendation as a crowd of more than 90 people watched. A town consultant says the board is likely to make a decision Friday.
