NASHVILLE, Tenn.- Metro Public Schools voted to approve nearly 30 new projects for the upcoming year.
At a meeting held Tuesday night, Metro School leaders approved the new projects totaling more than $159 million. The projects include re-opening Waverly Belmont Junior High School in the 12th area to accommodate the growth in that area and building a new elementary school in the Antioch cluster to house about 800 students.
Several schools were also approved for renovations and replacements. Hume-Fogg Magnet High School, Pennington Elementary School and Rose Bank Elementary were all green lit for renovations. Leaders voted to approve tearing down and replacing both Goodlettsville Middle School and Tusculum Elementary School.
The new projects and spending will still have to be approved by Metro Council before work can begin.
