NEWARK, Md.- Plans for the new Showell Elementary School to be built in Worcester County are approved. School officials approved the conceptual plan for a new $35.8 Million elementary school this week. 

The new school will be built on the same grounds as the existing school. The school layout is much bigger than the existing school and will be able to accommodate more students, according to Worcester County Public School Superintendent, Jerry Wilson. 

"The most important thing about this school is that what it will allow us to move our students out of the modulars that they are presently in, our second grade is in modulars and it will move our fourth grade back into the school so it will become our largest elementary school," Wilson said. 

Construction on the new school is set to start in 2019. Official's said the new school is expected to be completed by Spring 2021.
