Clarke County School Board Considering Options for West Broad School Site
The Clarke County School Board is expected to vote on the fate of the West Broad School site. Historic Athens Executive Director Tommy Valentine says he’s troubled about the options presented.
So we are disappointed that that is still an option that's still on the table, and especially an option that seems to have a real chance tonight.
“After three years of a spirited community dialog that’s included rallies, letters, phone calls and a general sense of people speaking out in favor of preservation on the site, tonight is coming to a concerning conclusion,” according to Valentine.
“The school board will have to decide between option A and option B. Option A is the option that was insufficient enough that we’ve spent the last three years trying to do better. So we are disappointed that that is still an option that’s still on the table, and especially an option that seems to have a real chance tonight."
The school Board meeting is Thursday at 6 o’ clock.
