The Wake County school board will deal today with another consequence of abandoning the Forest Ridge High School site in favor of Rolesville High School.
During the work session, school administrators will propose that Wake Forest-Rolesville High School be renamed Wake Forest High School because Rolesville High is opening in August. There's a price tag for the change.
According to this handout, it would cost $20,000 to change the name of the sign in front of Wake Forest-Rolesville and to change the sign in the main gym. But the big price tag is the estimated $100,000 in new uniforms for the high school to reflect the name change.
School board members indicated they'd support renaming Wake Forest-Rolesville High and Wake Forest-Rolesville Middle at the April 9 meeting. The discussion was mixed on West Apex HIgh with several board members said they'd like Friendship High. But at staff's urging, they'll see what the Apex Town Council does tonight.
