TRENTON - With schools around New Jersey falling apart, local lawmakers met in Trenton tonight to discuss how the state determines what schools to rebuild.

Officials looked to get answers on what school districts must do to get on the state's list of approved renovation projects. Mark Larkins, of the Schools Development Authority, argued for Trenton Central High School, which was left off the state's most recent list. He says he intends to address some of the building's emergent conditions, including a leaky roof.

It still isn't clear on exactly when repairs in Trenton could begin.
