In an effort to find middle ground in the minor skirmish that has erupted over the possibility of the PWC School Board bypassing the naming committee’s suggestion of Piney Branch Elementary School for the new school opening on the Linton Hall Road, a compromise has reportedly been reached. At tonight’s School Board meeting, the board will make a motion to name the new elementary school Piney Branch as was suggested by the naming committee and simultaneously move to name the new middle school Ronald Reagan Middle School, bypassing the creation of a naming committee altogether.
More to come…
UPDATE: From PWC Public Schools
Tonight, the School Board approved the name of Piney Branch Elementary School for the new school under construction on Linton Hall Road (which will open this fall) and in the same vote approved Ronald Wilson Reagan Middle School as the name for the school under construction at Silver Lake (which will open in the fall of 2012).
