Debate Continues over Cathedral High School

SPRINGFIELD, Mass. (WGGB) — Cathedral High School and it’s insurance company are nowhere close to a compromise, and that’s delaying construction at the tornado-ravaged school.

The Diocese of Springfield estimates it will cost about $70 million to build a new school, which they feel is necessary after the June 1st tornado tore through the Surrey Road property back in 2011.

Their insurance company, Catholic Mutual Group, says the building can be repaired for $15 million.

The two sides are in the middle of an arbitration that’s expected to wrap up in April — five months later than initially expected.

Right now, students are attending school at a temporary location in Wilbraham.
