  • School board to review building plan for new elementary

    The Shelby County School Board again will take up the subject of a new elementary school at Thursday's meeting at West Middle School.

     

    The board approved starting the process on Aug. 12, but opposed hiring Sherman Carter Barnhart, the architect used for Collins High School, at that time.

     

    After another discussion during a meeting in September, the board again questioned whether or not a new elementary school would be needed immediately and whether this is the right time to begin a new building project because of its financial impact.
