  1. Where is “Central East” middle school? Lots of new people moving here, many with no idea where these projects are located.

  2. Do you know the status of the Middle School that is supposed to be built adjacent to Jordan Elementary?

    • The school hasn’t been named yet. That process will begin sometime during the 2019-20 school year, per WCS

  3. More work on Brentwood HIGH? I here that Independence has many portables maybe something needs to be done there, just a thought.

    • If I would have continued to look through the updates I would have seen they are working on Indy! Thanks

  4. It would be great if they would finish the infrastructure first prior to building all these houses. Oak View has 12 portables which is ridiculous. What kind of educational experience are we giving our children. Where is our county leadership!
