ROCK SPRING, GA. (Times Free Press) -- Heavy equipment operators are busy prepping land for a new kindergarten through eighth-grade school on 100 acres off U.S. Highway 27 near Rock Spring, Ga.
The result of five years of planning, the new school will relieve overcrowding at Cherokee Ridge Elementary School near Chickamauga and at LaFayette Middle School. Its environmentally friendly features will include natural lighting, and the school's huge hallways will serve as space for project-based learning.
Now all it needs is a name.
"We're still trying to figure that out," Walker County school board Vice Chairwoman Patty Hart said, explaining the board has been focused on hiring a new superintendent.
