School Officials Say No County Approval Needed For DuBois Site

Posted Updated

RALEIGH, N.C. — Some Wake County parents are considering legal action in the fight over a temporary modular school site.

It appeared as if the Wake County School Board would have to ask Wake County commissioners for about a half-million dollars to prepare the DuBois Center site in Wake Forest.

Now, a school spokesperson says the law doesn't require that.

The school board opted for the temporary site with a two-year lease, which doesn't need County Commissioner funding. The school board originally pursued a three-year lease, but that was rejected by the county commission.

It appeared as if the school board would still need to ask the county commission for nearly $575,000 to develop land at the center. But, the school board is now saying that the law doesn't require that.

Parents say the Dubois Center is too far away and not a safe neighborhood.
