FALL RIVER, MASS. (WHDH) - People in Fall River made their case for a new Durfee High School.
Students, along with city and school leaders, attended a meeting on the subject Wednesday.
Officials said there are leaking ceilings, rusted walls and other safety hazards at the high school.
The school also sustained major damage after a pipe burst last month.
Fall River residents will vote on the proposal for a new school next month.
Students said the project is a long time coming.
If the proposal is passed, the school would open by 2021.
