LAUREL, Del.- Laurel school and community leaders broke ground on a new middle and high school complex on Thursday morning. Construction on the complex, which officials say should cost around $55 million, should start in December.

District Superintendent John Ewald said this project will help make students from Laurel more competitive academically.

"This means access to a world class education," Ewald said. "It means upgrades to technology opportunities as well as a beautiful facility for teaching and learning."

The complex will be located behind the current Laurel Senior High School, which will be demolished once the new schools open in the summer of 2014.

Voters in Laurel narrowly approved the referendum to raise money for the schools in October 2010.
