School Plan Approved

November 04, 1990

The county Board of Education, on a 3-1 vote, approved designs for the 66,000-square-foot Taneytown/Uniontown Elementary School.

Board member Carolyn L. Scott voted against the plans because of concerns about the lack of window space in the school office work area.

Board member Robert L. Fletcher was absent.

Plans for the $7.2 million facility, slated to open in 1993, include a centrally located media center, computer area and separate kindergarten loading and unloading areas.

County Commissioners are considering a 35-acre site on Route 140 and Mayberry Road, east of Taneytown, for the new school. The tract is owned by the Association for Retarded Citizens-Carroll County, which is asking $267,000 for the parcel.

The new school will house 637 students, kindergarten through fifth grade.

Superintendent R. Edward Shilling said officials would like public comment on naming the school. Suggestions may be submitted to the superintendent. The board is expected to name the school at its February meeting.
