A charter school that has been operating out of the former Singer Sewing Machine Factory on Barnum Avenue for the past four years will move into a new, 70,000-square-foot building on Howard Avenue next year. Officials broke ground on the three-story building slated to house Great Oaks Charter School of Bridgeport this past week, the Connecticut Post reported. The school will open in its new space in the fall of 2019. The project was delayed by state budget issues, but the managing partner of the firm overseeing construction said he “expect[s] smooth sailing now for the school.” [CTPost]
