Wake Schools Want More Construction Money

Posted June 30, 2003 5:21 a.m. EDT

— The Wake County School board is asking for $550 million to build new schools and to repair old buildings.

The school system wants to build two high schools, a middle school and 10 elementary schools. They also want to renovate more than 50 campuses.

School board members voted Monday to ask county commissioners for the money. They hope the county will put the issue on a bond referendum in October.
