Does the school board owe it to Rolesville to name a new middle school after the town?
As noted in today's North Raleigh News article, Rolesville town leaders have urged the school board to use "Rolesville Middle School" for the site on Burlington Mills Road. County commissioners have credited Rolesville leaders with helping acquire the property.
"They need to work with us in the naming of schools,” said Rolesville Mayor Frank Eagles in today's article. “It’s the people’s schools, not the school board’s schools.”
Town leaders helped negotiate more advantageous terms with the seller and chipped in part of the purchase price when commissioners rejected the initial deal.
