Support, concern over middle school plan

PULASKI COUNTY, Va. - Administrators and architects unveiled plans for a $45 million middle school in Pulaski County.

District leaders say they want to close the aging Pulaski and Dublin middle schools, and bring the students together under one roof at a high tech facility that could be constructed and complete by the fall of 2020.

Some parents told WFXR News that they support the plan, other taxpayers said the designs for open air learning spaces and athletic facilities go overboard, for a community with financial struggles that is seeing a decline in the student population.

The school board will decide later this month if they want to approve funding for the middle school consolidation project, or if the decision should go on the ballot for voters to decide in November.
