  1. What’s wrong with the road that IS there? So it’s not paved.i
    I grew up in a rural place where there were a lot of poorly paved or gravel paved roads. The school buses had no problem navigating them.
    And, Yes, the school’s only entrance was from a busy state highway

      • Don’t get me wrong. I’m not saying this will be wonderful.
        I’m objecting that any of us in Fayette Co should have yo spend a penny to build a new road.
        The School Board made the decision to build the new school there. They should use existing revenue to make it work.

        • Agreed. What a total boondoggle. Now the old school which apparently wasn’t adequate for teaching middle school kids will be used to do what? Oh that’s right, act as a Teaching location!
