New stadium or improvements to old school?
Suddenly, the School Board wants to use the $3 million appropriated for a new stadium at King George High School on needed renovations at the aging Potomac Elementary School in Dahlgren.
On Monday, School Board members agreed to ask the supervisors to shift the money to the old school. Member Renee Parker said the School Board changed its stance on the new stadium when it learned, at a joint meeting with the supervisors on Nov. 30, that there won’t be money any time soon to make repairs at Potomac elementary.
If only one thing can be done, the School Board wants the money spent on education.
