Following months of discussion and planning, the Wilson County School Board voted to move forward with two sites for the construction of new schools during a special-called meeting on Thursday.
Both school sites are needed to address growth rates that are putting pressure on existing county schools. One of the approved sites on Central Pike is 20 acres and is needed to address growth in the Gladeville area. Gladeville Elementary School is currently in excess of its student capacity. The property has frontage on Central Pike, just to the west of the intersection with Leeville Road.
