ONE SCHOOL, MANY SITES

Other suggestions have been offered as a site for the consolidated high school the Roane County Board of Education is planning to build.

Roane County Executive Ron Woody mentioned a 170 acre site in the city of Kingston. Interim Director of Schools Gary Aytes said school officials took a look at it. They determined it isn’t a suitable site.

“There’s absolutely no way in the world a school could be built up there,” Aytes said. “Access to it would have to be a new exit off the interstate. That land is not in discussion. No way.”
