Durant Road Middle School To Get More Portable Classrooms

Posted Updated

RALEIGH — The

Wake County School Board

has voted to bring more portable classrooms to Durant Road Middle School.

The school is already overcrowded and parents of children in year-round elementary schools worry there is not enough room for students in the sixth grade.

A previous plan to convert Stough and Carroll schools to year-round would have provided more seats, but that plan is off the table.

This vote gives Durant Middle short-term space with short-term planning.

Jones Dairy Elementary and the not-yet built Heritage Middle School will open as year-round schools after next year.
