School plans on Grady agenda Monday

GRADY - School trustees came closer this week to finalizing plans for exactly which option the Grady school district will pursue when a bond proposal is offered to voters this spring. Another planning meeting is on the calendar for 1 p.m., Monday when representatives from Parkhill Smith and Cooper will meet with the board to go over some of the options on the table. At last Monday’s meeting, discussions centered on the two primary ideas being thrown around - building a new school on property owned by the district just east of the current school or building a new school on the current football field and moving that field and stadium to the property east of the current facilities.
