Posted May 22, 2002 12:54 p.m. EDT

— The Wake County School board has

reevaluated a plan

to move an alternative school next to a magnet elementary.

Longview School

is an alternative center that serves students who have discipline issues or have been in trouble with the law.

The school system wanted to move it to property it already owns across from

Joyner Elementary

. However, parents from the magnet school objected.

The school system now plans to put portable classrooms on Longview's current site in Raleigh School while the campus is undergoing renovation.
