(WABC/CNN) - Crews are demolishing Sandy Hook Elementary School nearly a year after 20 first graders and six faculty members were killed there.
Newtown First Selectman Patricia Llodra said the demolition process will take several weeks.
The school is being taken down piece by piece in a process that's expected to accelerate over the next few days.
Residents in the city voted earlier this month to tear down the old Sandy Hook Elementary School and build a new one with $50 million in state money.
