High school education in Roane County could look vastly different in the future. Thursday night the Board of Education voted to build one new high school for the county.
None of the county’s current five high schools would remain open under the plan. The new school would serve the Midway, Oliver Springs, Harriman, Roane County High and Rockwood districts.
“There’s no looking back,” Vice Chairman Rob Jago said. “The decision is made. The real winners are our children. They’ve all won.”
