I don't think a new high school is going to be built for some time. I know that people in the county voted against it.

*pshaw* The PTB can't even decide what to do about the middle schoolers

Davie's board delays realignment plan

I live on the west side of the county - the area that brought in most of the defeating votes about the high school proposals. Not having kids, it's not really of interest to me. But from talking to many of the people in my area who voted NO, all it would take is an assurance of equity between the current high school and the new one (to be built in the more affluent eastern side) to make them change their minds and vote yes to bonds, increased taxes, or whatever it takes to build a new school.

These people have heard so many rumors - and no facts to dispute them - that kids living on the west side and attending the old high school would get short shrift. Their worries cover both curriculum and sports.

Since the Board of Education has not laid out, in plain terms, their plans for both the old and a future high school, the parents of those who will be stuck in the old one are hesitant to be in favor of a new school.

It will happen...but it will take the state to mandate a new high school. Most people there don't want the sports to be broken up...after all that is more important that an education...right (just kidding)?

Also it would be a high school of the haves (Bermuda Run, Bermuda Run West, Oak Valley...etc) and one for the have nots. My brother & family live in Bermuda Run West...most kids in Bermuda Run either go to West Forsyth or RJ Reynolds (both in Forsyth County) or they go to private schools.

GOOD LUCK!
