The Lee County School Board is considering options for the future of Lee County schools. There are three options on the table, all involving new facilities. One option would create three new facilities with fewer transitions for Thomas Walker students, where grades 6-12 would all be located on the same campus. However this would mean higher operational costs.
Another plan offers five new facilities and the same middle and highschool campus configuration but would require the highest capital cost. The last plan involves a countywide high school and more efficient career and technical education programs with the lowest capital and operational costs, but would also mean increased transportation time and no transition reduction.
The Board is still considering the plans and will meet again on March 9th.
