The Section 1 Addendum to 76 Del. Laws, c. 79 appropriates $1,600,000 to the Department of Education in planning money for the renovation of Hanby Middle School in the Brandywine School District and further authorized a local match share of $1,066,700. In light of declining enrollment and to avoid increasing operating costs, the District has decided to close the Hanby Middle School and has realigned the feeder pattern for its remaining schools. The closure of the Hanby Middle School will allow the District to forego the $13,134,014 in state share and $8,756,009 in local match share that would have been required to renovate the school. In lieu of renovating the Hanby Middle School, the Brandywine School District is hereby authorized to use the planning funds previously authorized to demolish the Hanby Middle School and for other costs associated with the District’s Space Consolidation and Grade Reconfiguration Plan approved by the Brandywine School District Board of Education on February 25, 2008. Approval is also hereby given to construct the Brandywood Elementary School, approved on C.N. # 0631B, on the site of Hanby Middle School and to complete the renovations of P.S du Pont, on C.N. # 0631C, as a Middle School.
