Newtown officials are turning their attention to the fate of an elementary school where a gunman killed 20 first-graders and six educators last month.

The first of two public hearings on what to do with Sandy Hook Elementary School is set for this afternoon at Newtown High School.

Town Selectman Jim Gaston says there's already been a lot of talk around town about the school's future. Many say it should be knocked down and a public memorial built in its place. Others favor renovating the school and removing the areas where the slayings occurred.

Some schools where massacres occurred - including Columbine High School in Colorado and Virginia Tech - reopened after renovations. Others were torn down.

Sandy Hook students and staff have relocated to another school in a neighboring town.
