The Metro school board approved the move within its capital needs request in a unanimous vote after years of conversation about the topic. This was in January 2017.
Metro Schools Director Shawn Joseph said although he wasn’t present for the years before Tuesday night’s decision, the few past months showed how committed the Bellevue community was in supporting the school. “Every community should have a great school and a community that embraces its school,” Joseph said before the vote. “I wholeheartedly support this decision.”
School board member and Bellevue resident Amy Frogge thanked the community for the input over the past two years. “We heard from so many community members,” she said. “The overwhelming majority wanted to see the school moved.”
But when will the move begin?
